Sustainable development and industrial policy


We have known for a long time that the earth is not flat. But can the economy be circular?

Last year the EU released a communication on the circular economy and indeed especially some B2B companies seem already to have a circular model – from eco-design to the recycling of their products.

And what about unions? Why promote this more ecological economy? How? And how can we manage the Just Transition in the sectors affected?
