EEB report | Impacts of EU circular economy policies in third countries
The report, produced by circular economy specialists at Eunomia Research & Consulting, focuses on developing a methodology to assess impacts of EU policies on third countries using exports from Vietnam to the EU and imports to Nigeria from the EU as examples.
The study shortlisted four indicators that can be used as the first step towards assessing circular economy policy impacts on third countries:
(*) Gross Value Added
(*) Number of jobs
(*) Greenhouse gas emissions
(*) Cohesion with EU policies
These represent a shorthand version of the economic, social, environmental and geo-political impacts that new regulations could have on non-EU countries and are already largely used to assess impacts of new policy for Member States of the Union.
