Project summary Organizations, large and Small and Medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are increasingly aware of the benefits of closing loops by improving resource efficiency: saving material costs, creating competitive advantages and new markets are among the main reasons for organisations to take action. At this respect, the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is considered as a driver of the Circular Economy by encouraging organisations to develop techniques which make better use of resources in the production phase and retain physical goods longer and more efficiently in productive use, thus increasing their competitiveness. Starting from these considerations, ENHANCE project overall objective is to improve the implementation of regional policy instruments oriented to increasing the efficiency of resources by the exchange of experiences and practices on supporting EMAS registration.   Main barriers perceived by EMAS adopters are: lack of EMAS recognition from the market and Public Authorities (PA), technical support from PA and external incentives; high cost, etc. In this regard, the role of PA supporting EMAS as a competent body becomes essential in order to remove these barriers and to encourage organizations to adopt EMAS through various means, such as reducing the technical barriers for EMAS adoption, enhancing benefits derived from EMAS, public subsidies and rewarding EMAS implementers with reduced enforcement (e.g., regulatory relief). Derived from the activities to be carried, such expected changes shall become effective upon the production of these main outputs: 1)Regional Studies on supporting EMAS registration. 2)Methodology to assess the feasibility of good practices on supporting EMAS registration. 3)EMAS Joint Database. 4)Thematic workshops to exchange experiences. 5)Regional Studies on the exchange process. 6)Toward EMAS Action Plans. Main beneficiaries from the cooperation will be PA, but direct effects resulting from the project will also affect organizations as EMAS adopters. €1,024,071.00 from 1 Jan 2017 to 31 Dec 2020 Topic Environment and resource efficiency Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? ERDF OPERATIONAL PROGRAMME (OP) 2014-2020 IN CATALONIA:  Priority Investment n. 2: “Competitiveness of small & Medium sized enterprises”. This policy instrument is supported by two strategies approved by the Catalan Government in 2015: Strategy for the promotion of green and circular economy and Catalan Strategy for Ecodesign.This instrument is linked to the need of improving the competitiveness of organizations, particularly SMEs, but taking into account a specific aspect of innovation: adding environmental added value to processes, products and services. This is essential in the competitiveness of SME.  The development of businesses must consider the environmental performance of the organization through a systematic approach, preferably, through the adoption of recognised voluntary schemes at EU level such as EMAS, a voluntary scheme that offers the opportunity of rethinking operations, activities, products and services within the whole business cycle.  This instrument is related to the Priority axis selected for ENHANCE with regard to supporting the capacity of SME to achieve regional, national and international markets and the innovation processes of the Catalan OP. In order to guarantee sustained results, the approach of this instrument needs to be improved in relation to: - Incentive organizations from all sectors to adopt good environmental practices and eco-innovation within a systematic approach and not a one-in-time action. - Enhance the collaboration among different Public Authorities (PA) and other interested parties to guarantee the effective implementation of voluntary instruments among the SME.   Which partners are working on this? Ministry of Territory and Sustainability, Government of Catalonia ERDF OPERATIONAL PROGRAMME (OP) 2014-2020 IN ANDALUSIA: Thematic Objective (TO) 3 - Enhancing the competitiveness of SMEs, in the agricultural (in the case of European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development - EAFRD) and in the fisheries and aquaculture sectors (in the case of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund - EMFF). Investment Priority (IP) 3d - Supporting SMEs’ capability to grow in regional, national and international markets and to be engaged in innovation processes. The Andalusian OP contributes to the strategic priorities of the European Regional Policy for the economic development and the Cohesion Policy, whose reference framework is determined by the Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The option for smart growth, aimed at contributing to an economy based on knowledge and innovation is directly related to TO3 of the Andalusian OP, “Enhancing the competitiveness of SMEs”, and more specifically to the to the Investment Priority 3d, Specific Objective 3.4.1, “Promoting SMEs growth and consolidation, in particular, by improving their finance, technology and access to advanced support services”. To achieve the objectives set on these environmental priorities in Andalusia, a collaboration and association between SMEs and the Administration is necessary.At this respect, TO3 foresees the improvement, promotion and development of voluntary instruments (EMAS among others) in SMEs as a key element for improving their environmental performance, for the sustainability of the production system and for generating green jobs. In order to guarantee sustained results and a more efficient implementation of structural funds, this policy instrument needs to be improved in order to encourage organizations to adopt systematically good environmental practices, as well as to foster collaboration among public authorities and other stakeholders to guarantee a successful implementation of EMAS and other voluntary schemes by SMEs.

Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development (Regional Government of Andalusia) Legge Regionale n. 31 del 13 Agosto 2007: Organizzazione della Regione per la trasparenza e la qualità degli appalti e delle concessioni - Regional Law n. 31 of 13th August 2007: Organisation of the Region for transparency and quality of contracts and concessions. Europe's public authorities are major consumers. Although Green Public Procurement (GPP) is a voluntary instrument, it has a key role to play in the EU's efforts to become a more resource-efficient economy. The objective of the policy instrument selected is to spread the application of GPP among public bodies of Liguria through the introduction of environmental criteria in the services and products purchasing procedures. In the article 20 the policy instrument requires the adoption of a three-year Action Plan in all public institutions of the region. The article 21 gives indication of environmental criteria to consider in the green purchasing procedures and it mentions EMAS explicitly as one of the main tool to apply GPP.To date in Liguria about 49 different three-yearly Action Plan have been adopted by public authorities of Liguria Region. In the year 2012 the Liguria Region has approved a deliberation that has furtherly detailed the products and services categories to consider in the GPP procedures and the criteria that can be used, confirming the relevance and strict connection of EMAS with this policy instrument. The instrument has several improvement opportunities, e.g.: - Increase the number of green purchasing procedures in the public institutions. - Make aware firms of the importance of EMAS to obtain public contracts. - Increase the knowledge of public officers of the best modalities to use EMAS in GPP following the national and international rules in the field.

Priority axis 4: Growth-capable entrepreneurship and internally competitive R&D. Specific objective 3. Innovative solutions increase resource productivity of enterprises  Estonian economy is the one of the most resource and energy intensive one in the EU. The enterprises have been reluctant to increase the resource efficiency for quite some time.Both ‘Europe 2020’ and ‘Estonia 2020’ have the objective of ensuring sustainable and low-carbon economic growth and the R&D and innovation strategy identifies resource efficiency as one of the main growth areas. To ensure this, it is necessary to continue to decouple growth from increasing resource use. The goal of this investment priority is to increase the competitiveness of enterprises both applying and offering resource efficient technologies, stimulating eco-innovation and contribute to economic growth in the longer term and reduce the pollution load from production on the environment and human health. Introducing new resource efficient technologies and other improvements, such as Environmental Management Systems, e.g. EMAS, will increase the competitiviness of enterprises.To improve the policy instrument 5, SEI Tallin will help MoE to improve the funding scheme under OP to become more efficient and goal-oriented. For this SEI Tallin will assist MoE to further develop and improve the policy measure to support resource effici and EMAS scheme as well as to develop and improve the evaluation criteria of the funding scheme (e.g selection of projects, evaluation of results, etc.). As a result the funding scheme will be improved in terms of the improved guidelines for application for funding, new or improved indicators for evaluating the performance of the funding scheme (OP), etc. Which partners are working on this? Stockholm Environment Institute Tallinn Centre Národní program zavedení systému řízení podniku a auditu z hlediska ochrany životního prostředí (Aktualizovaný program EMAS). Government Resolution dated 19 June 2002, Nr. 651 - National program EMAS. The main project object is to create a new National EMAS program fully based on international experience exchange and refering to the best practices. Main objective of this policy instrument is an update and revision of main objects including redefinition of main issues, roles and financial support programs. It leads to the better implementation of EMAS in CZ respecting national and regional and increases its potential relations to the national sustainable development strategy ČR 2030 and other strategic documents. In this Policy Instrument, there isn't sufficiently defined potential benefits and possibilities, which EMAS offers. Government needs to be more supportive and promote EMAS as one of the well-established voluntarily instruments.The update will bring several benefits: - Wider implementation of Environmental Management Systems (EMS) according to EMAS scheme.- Clear and consistent approach on national level respecting EU rules and procedures in organizations responsible for EMAS development. - Facilitate the implementation of EMAS individual organizations (better regulation) and the removal of obstacles (administrative costs and burdens), which are known from the practice of EMAS-registered organizations.- Financial tools to support potential registrations.- Higher awareness of the importance of EMAS to obtain public contracts due to the better knowledge of public bodies (national, regional, local) of the best way to use EMAS in GPP following national and EU rules.  Which partners are working on this? CENIA - Czech Environmental Information Agency ERDF OPERATIONAL PROGRAMME (OP) 2014-2020 IN AUSTRIA: Priority axis A2: Enhancing the regional competitiveness of SMEs Investment Priority (IP) 3d - Supporting SMEs’ capability to grow in regional, national and international markets and to be engaged in innovation processes. Section 11: Horizontal principles: 11.1. Sustainable Development  The Austrian OP contributes to the strategic priorities of the European Regional Policy for the economic development and the Cohesion Policy, whose reference framework is determined by the Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Smart growth is related to the Specific Objective ”Enhancing the competitiveness of SMEs as a basis for growth of companies”. Target groups are SMEs in the production, tourism and service sector. Special attention is given to projects of companies which provide products and services making a contribution to energy efficiency and climate change reduction. According to an EC study, EMAS has a positive influence on competitiveness and stimulates organisational and process innovations. As per section 11 of the OP all public subsidies and grants in Austria should take into account aspects of sustainable development. Currently, all applicants receive a questionnaire to fill out. It is intended to create more awareness for the topic of "Sustainable Development". In the questionnaire information about the existence of EMAS and other voluntary instruments is retrieved. EMAS is also integrated into the selection criteria for all subsidies and is also widely available as a criterion, i.e. an EMAS implementation achieves extra points in the project evaluation. To achieve the specific objective of enhancing the competitiveness of SMEs, subsidies should encourage SMEs more to adopt systematically good environmental practices, like EMAS.  Which partners are working on this?

Project summary CircE Project (European regions toward Circular Economy) involves 8 partners both at regional and local scale and representatives of different European social and economic scenarios: Lombardy RegionGovernment of CataloniaMarshal’s Office of Lower SilesiaProvince of GelderlandLondon Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB)Creation Development EcoEntreprises (CD2E)Sofia MunicipalityAssociation of Municipalities and Towns of Slovenia (SOS). The project aims at strengthening the diffusion of Circular Economy (CE) in Europe, consistently with the European Commission’s Circular Economy Package (2015). In particular the project aims at helping the Partners involved to increase the capability of their Policy instruments to steer economy towards a circular model. The project carries out this task by aiming at modifying or readdressing the selected policy instruments through an exchange of knowledge/experiences among Partners, through a continuous involvement of Stakeholders and through a deeper analysis of economic system. In the first phase (2,5 years) every Partner is intended to work on the main relevant economic sectors, identifying opportunities to develop CE as well as barriers, hampering their development. A prioritization of the identified opportunities will be produced on the base of shared criteria agreed in the project process. Policy options, already provided or potentially provided by the policy instruments, will be analyzed to find out best practices or new potential effective policy options.  "Every Partner will draft an action plan to transfer the lessons learnt in the interregional exchange into its own policy instrument, according to the prioritized opportunities and the highlighted barriers." In the second phase (2 years) the project will directly involve the political level to integrate the main findings into the selected policy instruments, modifying or reorienting them. In this phase effective implementation of the action plans will be monitored.  €1,763,924.00 from 1 Jan 2017 to 30 Jun 2021 Topic Environment and resource efficiency Partnership Lead Partner Partner What policy instruments does the project address? POR Lombardia ERDF 2014-2020 The POR Lombardia ERDF is based on the Europe 2020 jobs and growth strategy, aimed to pursue a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and reach social, economic and territorial cohesion. The POR Lombardia ERDF is also the most suitable policy instrument for the implementation of the EU Action Plan’s goals for the Circular economy [EU COM(2015) 614] because it: - approaches the integration of regional policies, in order to improve their effects in:        >restarting growth;        > increasing the productivity of the regional private and public system;        >increasing the competitiveness of enterprise and territorial system. - considers innovation as a key tool to support these challenges; - sees Public Demand to support innovation as a potential tool to start up and scale up new activities; - states the need to increase occupation, considering green economy as an opportunity for that; - supports complex investments projects; - aims environmental protection and sustainability principals.    Although all these issues are strictly linked with the Circular Economy’s strategies, the EU Action Plan for Circular Economy has been adopted after the approval of the POR Lombardia ERDF; therefore this instrument needs to be reoriented in order to help more significantly the change of the local productive system towards Circular Economy.  Which partners are working on this? Lombardy Region PO FEDER Catalonia 2014-2020 The PO FEDER Catalonia 2014-2020 (POR_CAT), adopted by the European Commission on 2015, is the roadmap for Catalonia towards achieving the objectives of the Europe2020 Strategy and prioritizes innovation and knowledge (40.9%), business dynamism (37.9%) and green economy (21.2%). Thematic Objective (TO) 3 includes the prioritization in green economy and eco-innovation in most of investment priorities. The Specific Objective 3(d)1, includes programs to improve the competitiveness of companies through the: efficient use of resources, implementation of green technologies, reduction of environmental impacts and production of more sustainable goods and services. It is stated that this shall include actions to improve the competitiveness of SMEs through the development of actions promoting circular economy. TO 1, 4 and 6 also contribute to implement the several key aspects regarding circular economy. The POR_CAT is a policy instrument strongly suitable for the implementation of the recently adopted EU Action Plan for the Circular economy [EU COM (2015) 614 final, 2/12/2015]. Therefore the POR_CAT needs to be reviewed and sectorialized across the Regional Smart Specialization Strategy (RIS3CAT) priority sectors, in order to a) integrate circular economy in a cross-cutting manner and b) design policies and actions to bring circular economy on the ground, which are the goals of the CircE project.  Which partners are working on this? Government of Catalonia, Ministry of Territory and Sustainability Regional Innovation Strategy for Lower Silesia Province for the years 2011-2020 - Strategic Framework for Smart Specializations of Lower Silesia The document was adopted by the Provincial Board in 2015. It was drafted as an attachment to the Regional Innovation Strategy for Lower Silesia Province for the years 2011-2020 defining challenges the region faces in terms of knowledge-based economy and innovation growth in Lower Silesia. Strategic Framework for Smart Specialisation of Lower Silesia indicates areas of smart specialisation of Lower Silesia along with verification mechanisms and programmed process of entrepreneurial discovery. Its purpose is to help the region adhere to the European Commission guidelines on Smart Specialisations, thereby helping Lower Silesia fulfil the criteria of ex ante conditionality in the context of funds for research and innovation under the Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020. There are six smart specialisations that constitues main strengths of Lower Silesia Voivodeship: Chemical nad pharmaceutical industry Spatial mobility High Quality Food Natural resources and recyclable materials Machines and equipment manufacturing, materials processing technology Information and communication technologies (ict) The EU Action Plan for Circular Economy has been adopted after the approval of Strategic Framework for Smart Specialisations of Lower Silesia; therefore this instrument needs to be reoriented in order to help the change of the local productive system towards Circular Economy more significantly.   Which partners are working on this? Marshal’s Office of Lower Silesia Voivodeship Operational Programme ERDF 2014-2020 of the East-Netherlands. OP ERDF 2014-2020 of the East-Netherlands is a joint programme of the provinces of Gelderland and Overijssel (East-Netherlands). It delivers grants to support SMEs to generate more turnover out of innovative new products, and employment within technology driven sectors. The region deploys the ERDF-budget for the promotion of innovation and low-carbon economy. The ERDF-projects for promotion of innovation focus on the S3-sectors identified in the East-Netherlands: agrofood, health, high-tech systems & materials, cleantech as well as to the cross-overs between these sectors on the one hand and ICT, water,  chemicals, creative and producing industry on the other hand. The transition to a low carbon economy is supported in all business sectors. Relevant aspects are reduction of CO2-emissions, growing use of renewable energies, more efficient use of energy sources and optimale use and reuse of natural resources in the environmental and technology sector. Besides that projects that aim to realize CE activities within the manufacturing industry are being supported. These projects should be promoted because the programme-partners expect the most impact of these projects on the regional’s economy and social tissue. They have a knowledge intensive character that is very coherent with existing companies and manpower, and create high value added products and services, which makes them protrusive for the region, by multiplying effects and rollout of sustainable/low carbon solutions. Which partners are working on this? Province of Gelderland Mayor of London’s Environment Strategy The Mayor of London’s Environment Strategy is a policy instrument strongly suitable for the implementation of the EU Action Plan’s goals for the Circular economy [EU COM(2015) 614 final, 2/12/2015]. It is a statutory strategy under the Greater London Authority Act 2007. The objective of the Mayor of London’s Environment Strategy is to provide leadership and policy guidance on environmental issues across the Greater London area . Currently there are multiple measures relating to different environmental issues; the most interesting for the project are “municipal waste” and “business waste” for which the principles of circular economy are more profitably applicable. Moreover, it is anticipated that following the election of a new Mayor in May 2016, all topic areas will be reviewed and, following a change in legislation, will be reformed as a joint environment strategy. This is a rare opportunity to influence the development of the new strategy and ensure that circular economy principles of EU Action Plan are built in from the start. This will be achieved by introducing new measures within the strategy that will encourage circular economy behaviours as well as demonstrations projects where appropriate. It is anticipated that we will also try and influence other London based plans such as the London Plan (key development document for the capital) and the Economic Development Strategy for London.   Which partners are working on this? ReLondon (Legal entity name London Waste and Recycling Board) Operational Programme ERDF Nord-Pas de Calais 2014-2020 (cancelled) The PO FEDER 2014-2020 contributes to the realisation of the sustainability goals and a strategy of green, smart growth of the Union and with the realization of economic, social and territorial cohesion in the Nord – Pas de Calais. The region has wished to reinforce research and focus on sectors of high potential through the Strategy of Research and Innovation for Intelligent Specialization (SRI-SI). The SRI-SI requires to mobilize the OT1 and OT3 of the OP in order to support actions to facilitate the transfer of research results towards the businesses. This multi OT axis approach (OT 1 and 3), will make it possible to improve the attractiveness and the robustness of the area by coupling logics of repair and development. The regional strategy aims to concentrate scientific excellence to serve companies of North – Pas-de-Calais in the 6 axes identified by SRI-SI. In the 4th axis the design of new and high-performance materials, bio-based products, , the upgrading of by-products and recycling as well as the resource efficency to support CE are supported on behalf the SRI-SI. After the EU action plan for CE adopted in December 2015, it is necessary to re-examine the objectives because the CE boundaries is much broader than materials and recycling dimension; so the OP needs to be reviewed across the Regional Smart Specialization Strategy (RIS3). Regionale economic priority sectors needs to be defined in order to design policies and actions and set-up CE in the region.  Which partners are working on this? Creation Development EcoEntreprises (CD2E) Municipal waste management program 2015 – 2020 The main objective of the Program is to contribute to the sustainable development through the implementation of an integrated waste management system, decreasing the influence of waste on the environment, using the waste as resource, increasing investments for waste management and increasing the polluter responsibilities. This policy instrument suitable for the implementation of the recently adopted EU Action Plan for the Circular economy [EU COM (2015) 614 final, 2/12/2015]. Therefore it needs to be readdressed in order to integrate circular economy in a cross-cutting manner and define policies and actions to set-up CE in Sofia. In particular, the following measure of the Program can be considered coherent with the EU policy and eligible to deal with: preparation and implementation of a project for establishment of a municipal centres for reparation of old equipment and furniture and preparation for re-use. The project is just launched and will develop a feasability study defining the sites, equipment, business model toestablishan operating company for recovery and re-use. The funds for the the construction of the plants and purchasing of equipment will be provided by the Operational programme Environment 2014-2020 ( OPE). With two centres of that kind, Sofia municipality should decrease the quantity of bulky waste landfilled, reducing especially WEEE production and stimulating the re-use of this products before they become waste, as requested by EU hierarchy.  Which partners are working on this? Sofia Municipality Operational Programme for the Implementation of the EU Cohesion Policy in the Period 2014-2020 (OP) OP is the key implementing document which presents the priority axes of those investment priorities where Slovenia will invest the EU Cohesion Policy funds with the objective of realising national EU 2020 targets. The elements related to the circular economy (CE) can be found in the priority axes 1 and 3. The 1st priority axis is related to the R&I, the measures in this priority axis relate, among others, to support the business in the areas like eco innovation and other measures that can support the transition towards resource efficiency and CE. Priority axis 3, which is devoted to the area of entrepreneurship, will support companies towards achieving greater resources and energy efficiency. While the OP provides framework, the Slovenian smart specialisation strategy specifies more specifically, the areas where the funding will be focused. One of the priority areas is also support for “the networks for the transition to circular economy”, additionally the priorities were also recognised in sustainable food production and the tourism. The OP also includes the measures for the transition towards the CE under the priority axes 9, which also covers the investment priority related to the CLLD strategies. Here, the activities that are contributing to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions and supporting the establishment of low-carbon and zero waste communities, thereby promoting environment-friendly economy based on efficient use of resources, could be supported.  Which partners are working on this?
