The transition from a linear to a circular economic model is an essential contribution to the EU’s efforts to develop a sustainable, low carbon, resource efficient, resilient and competitive economy. To accelerate the transition, the European Commission included in its 2015 EU Action Plan for the Circular Economy actions to engage with stakeholders through existing fora and to support the exchange of good practices. For the European economy to become truly circular, all stakeholders need to get involved: public authorities, businesses, trade unions, consumers, and civil society as a whole. This is why the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform was born as a joint initiative by the European Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) in March 2017.
