To accelerate the transition towards more circular business models, the European Commission will put forward a Sustainable Product Policy Framework for more durable products, consumers will be empowered and waste reduced. Priority sectors include electronics and ICT, textiles, batteries, plastics, and construction. But how will this happen?

We have taken an in-depth look at four key sectors – textiles, batteries, ICT and construction – and developed infographics to show the impact that the Circular Economy Action Plan will have in each. What is the current framework? What’s next? Which phase of the production process will it affect? (small hint: all of them)

For a tailored analysis of the impact of EU legislation on circular economy on your specific business model and products, have a look at our Circular Policy Scans.
