New circular economy package takes shape

EXCLUSIVE / The European Commission’s new circular economy package will include fresh legislation on waste, fertilisers, and water reuse, “strong commitments” on Eco-design, strategies for handling plastics and chemicals, and “major” funding for innovation, EurActiv has learnt.

Internal Commission documents seen by EurActiv revealed the bundle of rules and initiatives will include “targeted action” in food, construction, industrial and mining waste, and public procurement.

Policymakers believe that the shift to a circular economy, in which as little is wasted as possible, is necessary in a world with finite resources and a booming population.

The paper is not yet finalised, leaves out exact numbers for 2025 and 2030 targets, and is subject to change. It will require approval by the College of Commissioners before it is launched before the end of the year, most likely in December.
