UNE headquarters host the constitutional meeting of the Circular Economy Consultative Commission. This commission has been set up with the aim of benefiting its member entities, highlighting the potential of standardisation to facilitate the transition to the new economic model.
The Commission comprises more than 40 companies, including Spanish associations, four ministries (Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism; Ministry of Development; Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries And Food, and Ministry for the Ecological Transition), and other relevant bodies.
The circular economy permits different approaches and measures, and its scope includes a multitude of sectors. The current relevance of this initiative, the opportunity it represents for the different agents involved, together with the marked multisectorial character and the potential of standardisation to contribute to its objectives are the bases that have led UNE members to set up this commission.
