During the last session of the “Economic Parliament” of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber Grüne Wirtschaft advocated for a Circular Economy as one of the upcoming key projects in Europe. The transition needs commitment from all sides, especially from entrepreneurs and enterprises. Therefore Grüne Wirtschaft presented a resolution to the assembly, asking for full support of the Economic Chamber for the Circular Economy as a key concept of a sustainable economic system.
The resolution was passed unanimously by all members of the Economic parliament.
Grüne Wirtschaft will continue to ask for concrete actions especially under the upcoming Austrian EU presidency, as the Austrian government has claimed that Circular Economy will be prominently on its EU agenda.
