In December 2015, the European Commission adopted a Circular Economy Action Plan to give a new boost to jobs, growth and investment and to develop a carbon neutral, resource-efficient and competitive economy. The 54 actions under the action plan have now been completed or are being implemented, even if work on some will continue beyond 2019.

The EU Circular Economy Action Plan outlines both general and material-specific actions as different sectors and materials face different challenges in the context of the circular economy and need to be addressed in a targeted way. The circular economy brings economic benefits and incourages sustainable growth and competitiveness in the long term.
