The European Recycling Industries’ Confederation (EuRIC) welcomes the opportunity to comment on the EU initiative “Monitoring Framework for the Circular Economy”. Assessing progress and better understanding are important elements to realise the transition towards a Circular Economy that EuRIC entirely supports. This monitoring framework should focus on true indicators that can objectively assess the progress and avoid any distractions towards monitoring areas very weakly or not related to achieving this transition. EuRIC calls on the European Commission to seize this opportunity to create a monitoring tool which is able to identify the number of shortcomings hindering the transition to a Circular Economy.
ERPA – EuRIC Paper Recycling Branch – is a founding Member of the European Recovered Paper Council (ERPC), created in 2000 at a time where the concept of the circular economy had not yet become a major political and economic objective. It has since the outset supported the very objectives of ERPC and promoted the value chain approach that ERPC embodied. For the first time, EuRIC Paper Recycling Branch decided not to co-sign the new “European Declaration on Paper Recycling” 2016 – 2020.
