Breakfast Briefing on latest EASAC Report: Indicators for a Circular Economy

The Royal Irish Academy, as a member of the European Academies Science Advisory Council (EASAC), will host a breakfast briefing on the recent EASAC report: Indicators for a Circular Economy,

In this report EASAC has analysed the ways to assess progress towards the circular economy in the European Union and shares its insights on the indicators that are most needed in Europe. Recognising that relatively well developed sets of indicators already exist to capture environmental and resource perspectives, it concludes that a broader indicator set is desirable to capture links with sustainability and to specific policy objectives, public awareness of the global effects of EU production and consumption, industry solutions, and water use and reuse.  

The briefing will be delivered by the Royal Irish Academy's expert nominee to the EASAC Indicators Project Group, Ms Geraldine A. Cusack (Siemens Ireland).
