Eunomia leads EU circular economy study

Eunomia is leading a consortium of six European consultancies in a study of how EU policy could increase the circular economy (CE) potential of products.

The group will study the untapped CE potential of products in energy, construction, chemicals, textiles, furniture, transport and toys in work for the European Commission.

Before making recommendations, Eunomia will lead the consortium through comprehensive literature review, an analysis of current EU legislation and policy tools, a 12-week public consultation, a conference and seven workshops. This will lead to identification of potential policy actions to improve the overall CE contribution of the EU Product Policy Framework.

Project director Mark Hilton said: “By having won this work, we are not only able to shape future EU product policy to drive greater circularity in the economy, but also gain insight into how forthcoming policy changes may affect businesses and influence their priorities.”

Eunomia’s main partners will be Ecofys and Milieu with support from COWI, Adelphi and Fraunhofer ISI.
