RREUSE is pleased to provide comments to the ongoing consultation on the EU Renovation Wave Initiative. There exists significant opportunities for environmental improvement and job creation linked to this initiative which must be tied directly to EU social and circular priorities in order to maximise EU impact. This briefing highlights a number of ways in which the Renovation Wave can reinforce the EU’s Circular Economy Action Plan, Implementation of the EU Pillar of Social Rights as becoming an important element of a future Social Economy Action Plan.
It provides a snapshot selection of experiences from RREUSE members and social enterprises from its wider network working in the field of construction, demolition and management of the built environment focussed on re-use.
