Towards a circular economy-Waste management in the EU

25-09-2017

This STOA study explores waste management in the EU. Around one third of EU municipal waste was sent to landfill in 2012. To turn waste into a resource, waste management objectives must be aligned with the goals of a circular economy transition. This report highlights progress and challenges across Member States and in municipalities for (1) reducing waste, and (2) generating high-quality waste streams for re-use and recovery. It focuses on the current policy landscape, trends, and technologies for ...

To turn waste into a resource, waste management objectives must be aligned with the goals of a circular economy transition. This report highlights progress and challenges across Member States and in municipalities for (1) reducing waste, and (2) generating high-quality waste streams for re-use and recovery. It focuses on the current policy landscape, trends, and technologies for the five waste streams identified in the European Commission´s Circular Economy Action Plan. Employment opportunities for the different steps of the waste hierarchy as well as future policy options are identified and discussed.

Euroopan investointipankki

01-06-2017

Euroopan investointipankki (EIP) antaa pitkäaikaista hankerahoitusta, takauksia ja neuvontaa unionin tavoitteiden edistämiseksi. Rahoitusta myönnetään niin unionissa kuin kolmansissa maissa toteutettaviin hankkeisiin. EIP:n osakkaita ovat EU:n jäsenvaltiot. EIP puolestaan on Euroopan investointirahaston (EIR) suurin osakas ja muodostaa sen kanssa EIP-ryhmän. Komission esittämän Euroopan investointiohjelman puitteissa EIP-ryhmä on osa laajempaa strategiaa, jonka tarkoituksena on pienentää nykyistä ...

Euroopan finanssivalvontajärjestelmä

01-06-2017

Euroopan finanssivalvojien järjestelmä (EFVJ) on monitasoinen järjestelmä, joka muodostuu mikro- ja makrotason vakauden valvonnasta vastaavista viranomaisista. Näihin kuuluvat Euroopan järjestelmäriskikomitea, kolme Euroopan valvontaviranomaista ja kansalliset valvontaviranomaiset. EFVJ:n tavoitteena on varmistaa finanssivalvonnan johdonmukaisuus ja yhtenäisyys unionissa. Pankkiunionin perustamisen ja Yhdistyneen kuningaskunnan unionista eroamisen vuoksi valvontajärjestelmään tehdään muutoksia.

Välilliset verot

01-06-2017

Välillisiä veroja ovat arvonlisävero sekä alkoholin, tupakan ja energian valmisteverot. Yhteistä arvonlisäverojärjestelmää sovelletaan yleisesti tuotteisiin ja palveluihin, joita ostetaan ja myydään EU:ssa kulutustarkoituksessa. Valmisteveroja peritään tiettyjen tuotteiden myynnistä tai käytöstä. Jotta voidaan varmistaa sisämarkkinoiden moitteeton toiminta, EU:n lainsäädännöllä pyritään koordinoimaan ja lähentämään arvonlisäverosäännöksiä sekä yhdenmukaistamaan alkoholin, tupakan ja energian valmisteveroja ...

Common corporate tax base (CCTB)

22-09-2017

The European Commission has decided to re-launch the common consolidated corporate tax base (CCCTB) project in a two-step approach, with the publication of two new interconnected proposals on a common corporate tax base (CCTB) and a common consolidated corporate tax base (CCCTB). These were published on 25 October 2016, and the 2011 CCCTB proposal (COM(2011) 121) was withdrawn on the same day. The re-launch follows the lack of progress on the 2011 proposal in the Council.

The 2016 CCTB provides for the determination of a single set of rules for calculation of the corporate tax base. Companies operating across borders in the EU would no longer have to deal with 28 different sets of national rules when calculating their taxable profits. The intention is that the proposed CCTB is a step on the way towards re-establishing the link between taxation and the place where profits are made, via an apportionment formula to be introduced through the new CCCTB proposal. The proposals include a number of anti-tax avoidance measures. The proposal only concerns the corporate tax base and is not intended to harmonise national corporate tax rates. The Member States would retain their sovereign right to set their own tax rates. Please note this document has been designed for on-line viewing.

Companies operating across borders in the EU would no longer have to deal with 28 different sets of national rules when calculating their taxable profits. Consolidation means that there would be a 'one-stop-shop' – the principal tax authority – where one of the companies of a group, that is, the principal taxpayer, would file a tax return. To distribute the tax base among Member States concerned, a formulary apportionment system is introduced. Please note this document has been designed for on-line viewing.

North Korea [What Think Tanks are thinking]

22-09-2017

North Korea has stepped up its nuclear plans with the underground detonation of a hydrogen bomb and tests of its first suspected Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs), moves perceived as a major threat to global security. Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly on 19 September, US President Donald Trump threatened to 'totally destroy' North Korea if the United States is forced to defend itself or its allies against that country. The isolated communist regime of Kim Jong-un has continued ...

North Korea has stepped up its nuclear plans with the underground detonation of a hydrogen bomb and tests of its first suspected Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs), moves perceived as a major threat to global security. Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly on 19 September, US President Donald Trump threatened to 'totally destroy' North Korea if the United States is forced to defend itself or its allies against that country. The isolated communist regime of Kim Jong-un has continued its nuclear programme, despite repeated rounds of sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council and diplomatic efforts to diffuse the conflict.

The role of eGovernment in deepening the single market

22-09-2017

eGovernment, which involves deploying technology to deliver public services, increases administrative efficiency and reduces the administrative burden on the public and businesses. The EU has been actively promoting implementation of eGovernment practices, in particular in cross-border situations. Many studies point to significant savings for national authorities and reduced costs for businesses through further advancement of eGovernment in Europe. However, a low level of digitisation of public services ...

eGovernment, which involves deploying technology to deliver public services, increases administrative efficiency and reduces the administrative burden on the public and businesses. The EU has been actively promoting implementation of eGovernment practices, in particular in cross-border situations. Many studies point to significant savings for national authorities and reduced costs for businesses through further advancement of eGovernment in Europe. However, a low level of digitisation of public services and the lack of interoperability between eGovernment systems still present major electronic and procedural barriers to the free movement of goods, services and people in the single market. Other problems include insufficient access to information and low usability of the services offered. Many Member States are well advanced at national level, but the cross-border provision of e-services is still lagging behind. In order to address these issues, various policy initiatives have already been launched or are planned under the digital single market strategy and the eGovernment 2016-2020 action plan. A further boost should come from the current Estonian EU Council Presidency, which has made promotion of eGovernment one of its main priorities.

Research for PECH Committee - Marine recreational and semi-subsistence fishing - its value and its impact on fish stocks

14-07-2017

This study assesses the value and impact on fish stocks of marine recreational and semi-subsistence fisheries in Europe. Total economic impact of marine recreational fishing amounts to 10.5 billion euro, supporting almost 100,000 jobs. The impact varies between fish stocks, representing 2-72% of total catch. The marine recreational fisheries are biologically and economically important, so should be included in stock assessment to ensure sustainability, and considered a sector for development alongside ...
