Circular economy: “France aims to lead by example” stresses French Sustainable Development official

In an exclusive interview with viEUws at Green Week 2014, Jean-Paul Albertini – French Executive Commissioner for Sustainable Development at the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy – talks to leading environment journalist Sonja van Renssen about the implementation of circular economy in Europe. 

Albertini discusses the benefits which a circular economy could bring to Europe. He claims that such an economy could create new jobs and help to re-industrialise economies, thus reconciling both the environmental and economic performance of the member states. Furthermore, the Executive Commissioner stresses that circular economy has become a major priority for the French government. “Concrete action plans are being implemented not only to catch up, but to turn France into a leading country, when it comes to circular economy, claims Jean-Paul Albertini.
