Plastic Waste: a European strategy to protect the planet, defend our citizens and empower our industries

3 908 views

The first-ever Europe-wide strategy on plastics, adopted today, is a part of the transition towards a more circular economy.It will protect the environment from plastic pollution whilst fostering growth and innovation, turning a challenge into a positive agenda for the Future of Europe. There is a strong business case for transforming the way products are designed, produced, used, and recycled in the EU and by taking the lead in this transition, we will create new investment opportunities and jobs. Under the new plans, all plastic packaging on the EU market will be recyclable by 2030, the consumption of single-use plastics will be reduced and the intentional use of microplastics will be restricted.
