The second workshop of the CEN was the occasion for ACR+ to present its newly published guidelines and factsheets on circular economy planning.
ACR+ President, Josep Maria Tost i Borràs, announced that the Circular Europe Network already received the patronage of several personalities:
- Janez Potočnik (Co-chair of UNEP International Resource Panel)
- Antoinette Guhl (Deputy-Mayor of Paris city council in charge of circular economy)
- Leo Brincat (Malta Minister for Sustainable Development, the Environment and Climate change)
- Céline Fremault (Brussels Capital Region Environment Minister)
Antoinette Guhl presented Paris’ vision and strategy regarding circular economy. She highlighted Paris’ top priorities, which echo the Circular Europe Network’s first working priorities: sustainable building and food waste. These two fields are also part of London’s route map towards circular economy as presented by Clare Ollerenshaw, from London Waste and Recycling Board.
