European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy

Posted on 08/02/2018

The first-ever European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy was adopted on 16 January 2018 with the aim to transform the way plastic products are designed, used, produced and recycled in the EU. Better design of plastic products, higher plastic waste recycling rates, more and better quality recycling will help boosting the market for recycled plastics. It will deliver greater added value for a more competitive, resilient plastics industry. The Strategy is part of Europe’s transition towards a circular economy, and will also contribute to reaching the Sustainable Development Goals, the global climate commitments and the EU’s industrial policy objectives. This strategy will help reduce marine litter and support more sustainable and safer consumption and production patterns for plastics.
