All Committees
On Wednesday 20 May, AmCham EU hosted an event on 'Reflections on Europe’s circular economy and what comes next', where we welcomed Marius Vašcega, Head of Cabinet to Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevicius, European Commission as a guest speaker. The event was an opportunity to discuss the European Commission’s objectives with regard to the Circular Economy Action Plan released on Wednesday, 11 March and how this fits in with the European Green Deal and the EU’s economic recovery plan in the context of COVID-19. 
The discussion addressed how the circular economy can boost the EU’s sustainability efforts and improve its resilience in terms of retaining its resources. We also outlined our member companies’ best practices in circularity, which are also outlined in our brochure ‘The Circular Economy: 15 innovative industry solutions that drive a sustainable future’. Leah Charpentier (First Solar), Chair, Environment Committee, AmCham EU moderated the discussion.
