Ekonomija ċirkolari

This page is also available in:

It-tranżizzjoni lejn Ekonomija Ċirkolari hija prijorità ewlenija fl-aġenda tal-KESE bħala soluzzjoni biex tiġi miġġielda l-kriżi klimatika u tiġi protetta l-pjaneta tagħna. Hija opportunità kbira għas-soċjetà ċivili peress li tista’ tgħin biex:

  • tiżdied il-kompetittività tal-industrija Ewropea;
  • jiġi promoss it-tkabbir ekonomiku sostenibbli;
  • jinħolqu impjiegi ġodda.

Il-mudell “take-make-waste” tal-produzzjoni u l-konsum li għadu jiddomina l-ekonomija tagħna llum mhux biss qed jilħaq il-qofol tiegħu f’riżorsi moħlija, iżda wkoll qed idgħajjef il-ġlieda kontra t-tibdil fil-klima. Għall-kuntrarju tal-ekonomija lineari, Ekonomija Ċirkolari hija disinn riġenerattiv u restorattiv li jiffoka fuq il-ħolqien u ż-żamma tal-valur ekonomiku, filwaqt li jindirizza l-isfidi ambjentali globali bħat-tibdil fil-klima, it-telf tal-bijodiversità u t-tniġġis filwaqt li jrendi benefiċċji ekonomiċi.

L-aħbar it-tajba hija li t-tranżizzjoni ċirkolari diġà qed isseħħ fil-prattika. Il-partijiet ikkonċernati mis-soċjetà ċivili inklużi n-negozji, it-trade unions, l-akkademja u l-komunitajiet tal-għarfien, l-organizzazzjonijiet taż-żgħażagħ kif ukoll l-NGOs u gruppi ta’ interess oħra qed joħolqu u jimplimentaw ħafna inizjattivi ċirkolari fil-livell lokali u reġjonali. Il-katalizzazzjoni ta’ soluzzjonijiet ċirkolari u tat-tmexxija mill-partijiet ikkonċernati rilevanti hija l-aħjar opportunità tal-Ewropa biex taċċellera t-tranżizzjoni lejn Ekonomija Ċirkolari.

Bħala tali, il-Pjattaforma Ewropea tal-Partijiet Interessati tal-Ekonomija Ċirkolari, inizjattiva konġunta tal-KESE u tal-Kummissjoni Ewropea, hija pjattaforma stabbilita fl-2017 biex tlaqqa’ flimkien il-komunità tal-Ekonomija Ċirkolari fl-Ewropa. Il-pjattaforma mmexxija mill-partijiet ikkonċernati tappoġġja t-tranżizzjoni tal-Ewropa lejn Ekonomija Ċirkolari billi trawwem id-djalogu, tikkondividi l-għarfien u taqsam l-aħjar prattiki.

    The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the Consultative Commission on Industrial Change (CCMI) believe that the present and future of critical raw materials resilience is of essential concern to EU's organised civil society. For this reason, and because the Commission's Action Plan represents a step forward by providing a clear roadmap with initiatives and actions to be taken at EU level, overall the EESC recommends that the European Parliament and the Council support this approach.
