In a ‘circular economy’, waste is reduced, and goods are reused and recycled as much as possible. The European Commission will review the requirement on packaging and packaging waste in the EU. The institution has opened its roadmaps for feedback, deadline 06 August 2020.
The review will include:
- improve packaging design to promote reuse and recycling
- increase recycled content in packaging
- tackle excessive packaging
- reduce packaging waste.
Your input will be summarised in a synopis report explaining how the input will be taken on board and, if applicable, why certain suggestions cannot be taken up.
This feedback will be taken into account for further development and finetuning of the initiative.
