Search for members for the Circular Economy Expert Group
In the midst of the transition to the circular economy, there is a significant amount of change that needs to occur in order to ensure that progress will be made. The Circular Economy Package, released by the European Commission in 2015, stated that there will be actions taken to launch a project with various banks and the European Investment Bank to provide more financial support to the new circular economy. “The group”, which is specifically the Support the Circular Economy Financing Expert Group, will carry out tasks similar to the Commission’s Register of Commission expert group. It will primarily advise the Commission on how to fund the circular economy on behalf of the Member States as well as being the main body to make decisions on the financial aspects of the circular economy.
Currently, the Commission is accepting applications for members of the expert group. The categories that will be represented in the group are as follows:
- European Investment Bank
- National promotional banks or institutions
- Organizations, specifically with circular economy focuses: NGOs, financial institutions, universities, law firms
- Various public entities: EU agencies
