The Support to Circular Economy Financing Expert Group is created in the context of the Circular Economy Finance Support Platform. It will provide advice and expertise to the European Commission to support the generation and financing of circular economy in the Member States.
The expert group should provide a forum where coordination, exchange of information and best practices take place between key circular economy stakeholders, thus identifying main challenges and obstacles for circular economy projects preparation and financing and proposing improvements to facilitate the transition to circular economy. Further, the expert group should help to raise awareness towards circular economy financing.
The expert group will provide recommendations regarding concrete measures to facilitate circular economy project financing. To this end, it will analyse the characteristics of circular economy projects and their particular financing needs, provide general recommendations on structuring and improving bankability of circular economy projects, pointing out gaps and eventually proposing improvements, and coordinate activities regarding financing of the circular economy.
The expert group will further support the analysis on whether existing financial instruments such as the European Fund for Strategic Investments and the InnovFin - EU Finance for Innovators programme, cover the needs of circular economy project financing sufficiently or new, dedicated financing instruments for the circular economy projects are needed.
Assist the Commission in relation to the implementation of existing Union legislation, programmes and policies
