Resource Efficiency Platform priorities announced

Brussels, 5 December – The European Resource Efficiency Platform (EREP) has defined its short-term priorities, to be discussed at a plenary meeting on December 14th. Following three working groups which were set up in June, EREP will focus on measures within topics of: the circular economy/greening the economy; setting objectives and measuring progress, and; framework conditions for investments in resource efficiency.

EREP’s aim is to provide high level guidance to the European Commission and Council on how to transition into a more resource efficient economy, and is made up of Commissioners Potocnik (Environment), Tajani (Industry), Hedegaard (Climate), emeta (Tax and customs) and Rehn (Economy), as well as MEPs, national ministers, business, academics and NGOs.

The group’s objectives will be altered depending on feedback and used to define recommendations for short term actions in June 2013.
