On June 25th   Luxembourg government represented by Minister Étienne Schneider, Minister François Bausch, Minister Nicolas Schmit, and Minister Marc Hansen met with the monitoring committee, the supervisory body of the Rifkin strategy, to report on the progress of the strategic measures that have been in place since the launch of the project.

The plan produced by Jeremy Rifkin aims to make Luxembourg a more efficient, more digitalized, and more integrated country that depends less on finite resources and is more of a “circular economy.”

The report publishes percentages showing the progress of nine priority measures that were chosen by the Governing Council in November 2016.

These projects include the promotion of electromobility and launch of a programme for private zero emissions vehicles, the implementation of a roadmap for sustainable food production, the promotion of the circular economy through public procurement and the gradual development of mobility as a service.

The government report shows that six out of nine projects mentioned have achieved success levels of 80%. Sources
