On May 23, the European Commission released the 2022 Spring Package. It is a crucial stage within the European Semester process, which aims to provide Member States with recommendations and guidance in driving national reforms to achieve common EU objectives, among which, an inclusive green transition.
RREUSE applauds the recently approved “Law on Waste and Contaminated Soil for the Circular Economy” in Spain, which includes a provision that mandates 50% of public tenders related to the collection, transport, and treatment of second-hand products to social enterprises. This initiative is a crucial element of the Plan for Recovery, Transformation and Resilience (PRTR).
RREUSE is enthusiastic to be among the cosignatories of the Pact for Skills Partnership and believes it can be a useful instrument to support the decades-long work of social enterprises active in the circular economy for the promotion of green and transferable skills and lifelong learning opportunities.
