    Completing the picture: How the Circular Economy tackles climate change, V.1
    This report highlights the indispensable role that the circular economy plays in tackling the climate crisis. It aims to demonstrate how circular economy principles and strategies significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It sets out analysis on industry and the food system to illustrate how the circular economy transforms the way products are made and used, and how this transformation has the potential to reduce emissions. 
    It discusses initial findings indicating that the circular economy offers a unique potential to increase resilience to the physical effects of climate change, and aims to initiate a deeper exploration of the subject. Finally, setting clear priorities, the paper calls on governments,
    businesses, investors, and academia to integrate their efforts to respond to climate change with those to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.

    Uploaded August 30, 2019
    This is the Report description and Table of Content of the European Adhesives & Sealants Market 2019-2024, prepared by Smithers on behalf of FEICA.
    The aim of this programme is to provide market statistics from an independent source which are updated at regular intervals. The analysis is based on primary research and consists of market knowledge obtained by direct interviews from the adhesives and sealants industry (formulators, raw material producers, equipment suppliers) and analysed by Smithers.
    The geographic scope of the study encompasses Europe, including Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) plus Turkey. The European region is split into 16 regional markets, which are analysed by market segment and product category.
    The study follows the harmonised FEICA-ASC-CATIA Adhesives and Sealants Classification Manual. Furthermore, the 200+ page report is structured in such a way as to facilitate international comparisons between Europe, NAFTA and the Asia-Pacific region. The markets of the latter two regions are analysed in separate companion reports offered by the Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC).
    The market size is defined for the year 2018 and a demand forecast for the period 2019-2024 is also provided. The statistical data are reported in tonnes and euro currency.
