How to transform our economy to respond to overarching local and global need.

A taskforce taking on the challenges of the transformation of our economy from a linear to a circular economy and from a non-sustainable to a sustainable economy in full recognition of the planetary boundaries and the true meaning of “think global…act local”.

The taskforce will take up issues like net-zero carbon transformation of the economy and society between now and 2050 in light of the Commission’s recent vision paper, encompassing all aspects of this transition from climate and energy policy to low emissions mobility, as well as development of a circular and bio-based economy, including all aspects of environmental policy from waste and chemicals to food and agricultural policy. The task force will look at how international cooperation, EU Foreign policy and EU Trade policy can interact in this process.
