About this initiative


This new action plan will speed up the EU’s transition towards a circular economy. It will:

  • strengthen EU industry
  • help fight climate change
  • preserve the EU’s natural environment.

The new action plan will analyse the lifecycle of products and materials to ensure a sustainable use of resources and tackle resource-intensive sectors (e.g. textiles, construction, electronics and plastics).

It will also feed into the EU’s industrial strategy.
