[EN] NGOs demand Commission justify axing of Circular Economy package



Environmental campaigners have demanded the European Commission provide any analysis it has that justifies its decision to ditch the Circular Economy package of recycling, waste and landfill rules.

No such evidence has been given since Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans announced the laws would be axed in December, said four non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in a letter officially applying for the release of internal documents.

The letter to Timmermans, seen by EurActiv, was sent yesterday (3 February) by the European Environmental Bureau, Friends of the Earth Europe, Surfrider Foundation Europe and Zero Waste Europe.

The NGOs are sceptical that any evidence exists. The package was on a hit list of laws that lobby organisation BusinessEurope wanted killed off by the executive, and critics are suspicious of the motivation behind its withdrawal.
