Europe wants to be a front-runner in climate-friendly industries and clean technologies. The European economy will have to be overhauled, from energy generation to food consumption, from transport to manufacturing and construction.

As an integral part of the EU Commission’s strategy to implement the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda and the sustainable development goals, the European Commission launched the new EU Green deal with the aim of “transforming the EU into a fair and prosperous society, with a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy where there are no net emissions of greenhouse gases in 2050 and where economic growth is decoupled from resource use”.

The collaboration of all actors along the chain is a pre-requisite to achieve such an ambition. Moreover the fundamental concept behind circular economy is to enable product data to be shared among all entities.

GS1 in Europe developed a position paper on the EU Green Deal and the Circular Economy, highlighting the opportunities for GS1 and its ecosystem in facing this unprecedented challenge.
