Circular Economy Package must form part of the European Commission's plans for 2015

12th December 2014

Ahead of the European Commission's announcement in the European Parliament on 17 December, the Aldersgate Group urged the European Commission to maintain the circular economy package in its work programme for 2015.

Nick Molho, Executive Director of the Aldersgate Group, said: "Moving towards a circular economy with much higher degrees of recycling and remanufacturing is an important part of making the European economy more efficient, competitive as well as environmentally sustainable. Ensuring that EU policy goals are delivered through "better regulation" is a good aspiration, but the Commission should go about this by developing smart regulations to meet these goals as opposed to simply abandoning crucially important areas of policy such as the circular economy package".
