CRNI has set out 81 recommended actions in its response to the DCCAE consultation that can help deliver a fairer and more circular economy addressing the urgency of climate change in Ireland. 

This includes ambitious and innovative ways to re-prioritise the waste system so that it puts prevention, reuse and repair at the heart of every action. The main focus of the measures is on investing in and supporting prevention (including better design, sharing, leasing, reuse and repair) and preparation for re-use (including repair and refurbishment) across a range of sectors. Also included are measures to support recycling and social enterprise, who will play an essential role in delivering a more Circular Economy in Ireland.  

The submission in full can be read here.

CRNI looks forward to working with the Department and key stakeholders to implement these policy recommendations as part of a coordinated approach.
