As part of the process to develop a more ambitious circular economy package, the European Commission organised a circular economy conference in Brussels on 25 June 2015.
Event date: 25/06/2015
Location: Charlemagne building
Organiser: European Commission

The circular economy package due in late 2015 will lay out the opportunities for green growth and build on previous EU resource efficiency and innovation initiatives.

This conference supported a public consultation that will collect the views of stakeholders on the main policy options and measures explored for this initiative.

Participation in this conference was open to all stakeholders wishing to contribute to shaping European economic policy making.

The conference consisted of an opening plenary (keynote and panel discussion), a series of break-out sessions addressing specific aspects of the circular economy, and a closing panel with institutional representatives.

It was opened by Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans and closed by Vice-President Jyrki Katainen. It included contributions from the Commissioner for the Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, Elżbieta Bieńkowska and Commissioner for the Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella.
