The circular economy, climate change and energy efficiency are challenges that boost the EU's competitiveness by requiring that companies are prepared to face scarce resources, price volatility, and new market needs.


Given the creation of novel business opportunities generated by new scenarios involving the circular economy, climate change and energy efficiency, standardisation is a proven and effective tool.

The EU Action Plan for the Circular Economy, the European Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change, and the Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Directives are examples of the EU using standardisation to comply with its policies, elaborating specific standards for this purpose.
