The year 2019, a decisive year for the circular economy, will be marked by the adoption of the Circular Economy Act, transposing the new European directives and implementing the measures of the Roadmap for the Circular Economy. As such, the National Institute of Circular Economy (INEC) invited its members and many parliamentarians this Wednesday, April 3, on the occasion of the revelation of the 10 Proposals made by the Institute for the Circular Economy Law.
Fith a linear model of production and consumption based on the obsolete principle of abundance of natural resources, there is a collective awareness of the need for a transition to a new model. It is therefore necessary to reduce the consumption of virgin raw materials as much as possible, and to optimise the use of those already present in our socio-economic system, while continuing to create wealth. These findings confirm the urgency of a transition to a sober and efficient model in the use of resources, the circular economy.
With the adoption of the Circular Economy Law, the National Institute of Circular Economy (INEC) proposes 10 measures to achieve the objective of moving from a model of impact reduction to a model of value creation that is positive from a social, economic and environmental point of view. To achieve this, it is necessary to act on the four levers of public action in a shared trajectory: Training, incentives, regulation and taxation.
These 10 measures, submitted to the public authorities, will be aimed at achieving the transition from a model of impact reduction to a model of value creation that is positive in social, economic and environmental terms. To this end, INEC has based its reflection on the contribution of its members, constituting a fabric of actors representative of the whole of French society; companies, local authorities, associations, universities, etc. Its mission is to federate all public and private players to promote the circular economy and accelerate its implementation.
