Economia circulară

This page is also available in

Tranziția către o economie circulară este o prioritate pe agenda CESE ca soluție de combatere a crizei climatice și de protejare a planetei noastre. Este o oportunitate excelentă pentru societatea civilă, deoarece poate contribui la:

  • sporirea competitivității industriei europene;
  • stimularea creșterii economice durabile;
  • crearea de noi locuri de muncă.

Modelul liniar de producție și consum („luăm‑fabricăm‑aruncăm”), care încă domină economia noastră în prezent, nu numai că duce la irosirea resurselor, ci și subminează lupta împotriva schimbărilor climatice. Spre deosebire de economia liniară, o economie circulară este un concept regenerativ și restaurator care se axează pe crearea și păstrarea valorii economice, abordând provocările globale de mediu, cum ar fi schimbările climatice, pierderea biodiversității și poluarea, generând, în același timp, beneficii economice.

Vestea bună este că tranziția circulară este deja o realitate la fața locului. Părțile interesate din societatea civilă, inclusiv întreprinderile, sindicatele, mediul academic și comunitățile de cunoaștere, organizațiile de tineret, precum și ONG-urile și alte grupuri de interese creează și pun în aplicare numeroase inițiative circulare la nivel local și regional. Catalizarea soluțiilor circulare și a poziției de lider a părților interesate relevante reprezintă cea mai bună oportunitate pentru Europa de a accelera tranziția către o economie circulară.

Ca atare, Platforma europeană a părților interesate privind economia circulară, o inițiativă comună a CESE și a Comisiei Europene, este o platformă creată în 2017 pentru a reuni comunitatea economiei circulare din Europa. Platforma bazată pe contribuția părților interesate sprijină tranziția Europei către o economie circulară prin promovarea dialogului, schimbul de cunoștințe și de bune practici.

Europe is embarking on a transition towards climate neutrality and digital leadership. European businesses can lead the way as we enter this new age, as they has done in the past.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are essential to Europe’s competitiveness and prosperity. Based on the new SME Strategy, the EU will support SMEs by:

  • encouraging innovation through new funding and digital innovation hubs as part of the sustainable and digital transitions;
  • cutting red tape by reducing barriers within the Single Market and opening up access to finance;
  • allowing better access to finance by setting up an SME Initial Public Offering Fund (with investments channelled through a new private-public fund) and the ESCALAR initiative (a mechanism to boost the size of venture capital funds and attract more private investment).

The EESC strongly supports the Commission's proposal – Next Generation EU – as a specific tool for a quick and effective recovery.

The EESC takes a very positive view of the Commission's two main decisions:

  1. to introduce an extraordinary financial recovery instrument as part of the multiannual financial framework
  2. to raise common debt, which will be repaid over a long period of time, and prevent the extraordinary financial burden from falling directly on the Member States in the short run.

The EESC strongly welcomes the fact that the newly proposed instrument should be closely coordinated with the European Semester process, and furthermore welcomes the Commission's proposal to introduce additional genuine own resources based on different taxes (revenues from the EU Emissions Trading System, digital taxation, large companies' revenues).

The European Union and its Member States must stand united to protect their sovereignty. The EESC firmly believes that if Europe is to maintain its leading role in the world, it needs a strong, competitive industrial base. The EESC recognises the crucial importance of shifting to a carbon-neutral economy and of reversing the current curve of biodiversity collapse. Without a green industrial strategy as a cornerstone of the Green Deal, the EU will never succeed in reaching a carbon-neutral economy within one generation. The new industrial strategy must ensure the right balance between supporting European businesses, respecting our 2050 climate neutrality objective and providing consumers with incentives to shift consumption to sustainable goods and services .
