Circular Europe. How to successfully manage the transition from a linear to a circular world

Many European countries still lack a national strategic roadmap for transposing the European directives at national level and there are still some outstanding issues, starting from the need to have clearer operational guidelines for the adoption of circular models and metrics for monitoring the transition towards circular models. Study prepared in collaboration with Enel and with the scientific contribution of Enel Foundation.

Circular Europe. How to successfully manage the transition from a linear to a circular world

The world is facing major challenges. The profound and fast-paced economic, climatic and technological changes are moulding society and lifestyles, opening areas of uncertainty and stimulating new needs, including protection and social equality.

Within this context, the Covid-19 outbreak has underlined the fragilities of our societies and the need of a system-oriented project capable of developing a positive vision of the future, by catalysing energy, resources and consent.

This is Europe’s moment. If there exists one project which has the power to develop a positive vision for the European Union, it is definitely Circular Economy: it has the potential to become a “catalyst for the common good”, around which developing a grand vision for the future. European Institutions have strongly acknowledged this potential. The New Circular Economy Action Plan issued in March 2020 represents an important milestone towards the transition and even the new recovery instrument introduced by the Commission, Next Generation EU, with a total budget of 750 billion Euros, identifies Circular Economy as a pressing need for the European recovery.

However, many European countries still lack a national strategic roadmap for transposing the European directives at national level and there are still some outstanding issues, starting from the need to have clearer operational guidelines for the adoption of circular models and metrics for monitoring the transition towards circular models.
