Re-use targets can create 300,000 new jobs in Europe!


A new report written for the EEB by Dr. Jane Beasley (Beasley Associates) and Ray Georgeson (Ray Georgeson Resources) has been published. The study sets out a number of different scenarios for setting ambitious recycling targets and separate re-use targets, especially for furniture and textiles.

The report claims that if Europe places greater emphasis on actions further up the hierarchy, especially in re-use and repair this could contribute to a high-employment strategy. The impact of more intense reuse on job creation potential is high – at least one-third of new resources jobs in Europe could come from re-use.
