A new study by Enel and The European House – Ambrosetti, “Circular Europe: How to successfully manage the transition from a linear to a circular world”, takes an in-depth look at the state of the transition to a circular economy and assesses the road ahead. The report focuses on job creation, modernization of the economy, and establishing sustainable growth.“The large-scale adoption of a circular economy requires a coordinated effort, aimed at re-imagining and re-configuring, in a circular perspective, many if not all production schemes and business models,” said Francesco Venturini, CEO of Enel X, Enel’s subsidiary focused on renewable energy.
The study looks at the 27 member states of the European Union, as well as the United Kingdom, comparing 23 quantitative metrics and 10 main indicators.
The study focuses in particular on Italy, Spain, and Romania, with the first two showing medium-high levels of development. Romania on the other hand, came in at the bottom of the ranking.
