Eurostat launches website section on circular economy reporting

25 January 2018

A circular economy aims to maintain the value of products, materials and resources for as long as possible and minimise the generation of waste. On 16 January 2018 the European Commission published a Communication on the monitoring framework for the circular economy. The framework is structured into four broad areas: production and consumption, waste management, secondary raw materials and competitiveness and innovation.
In order to underpin this initiative, Eurostat has launched a new website section dedicated to circular economy reporting all the indicators of the monitoring framework, updated with latest data, as well as supporting visualisation tools (Press Release Eurostat, 16 January 2018).
