Report on "A New Industrial Strategy for Europe" by the CoR ECON commission
On 25 June 2020 the ECON commission of the Committee of the Regions adopted unanimously the report on "A New Industrial Strategy for Europe".
In line with the proposals sent by EOS to the ECON commission, the Report states: "welcomes the new Circular Economy Action Plan5 which puts forward a series of measures to allow the EU's industries to seize the opportunities of a more circular and bio-based approach that will ensure a cleaner and more competitive industry by reducing environmental impacts, alleviating competition for scarce resources and reducing production costs; it can further reduce
the dependency on energy and resource imports; underlines the importance of the transition to a bio-based and circular economy also for employment, and of a sustainable built environment as a key element of that transition".
