The Circular Economy law

The Circular Economy (CE) law aims, through the exhaustive use of products through multiple cycles of use, to eliminate garbage on our planet. It involves the reincorporation of waste in the production chain to be reused within the production process. Also, they can be transformed into raw material for the manufacture of new products. Its adoption, as a consequence, will help in the conservation of our planet. That is why legislating for its implementation is of great relevance for the well-being of future generations.

In his article, For a Circular Economy Law,” published in Milenio in December 2020, Miguel Ángel Santinelli Ramos, Director of the Faculty of Social Responsibility and CLARES of the Anáhuac University, makes an interesting analysis about CE. In addition, Santinelli highlights the importance of the presentation of the initiative with a draft decree to consider the General EC Law as a solution to socio-environmental problems.

In fact, this bill would make the CE be promoted by force of law, and not voluntarily as up to now, allowing the country to advance in the transformation of the economy.

“Within the draft decree we can highlight the establishment of a series of instruments for the control, management and improvement of the circular economy such as: Solid Waste Management Plans; Shared Responsibility Plans; certificates from the Secretariat; State and Municipal Programs; Environmental Impact Assessment, and the National Circular Economy Plan ”.
