Q&A progress made in the EU Circular Economy Action Plan

16 February 2017

In December 2015 the European Commission adopted an ambitious Circular Economy Package including legislative proposals on waste with recycling and landfill reduction targets, and a detailed Action Plan of measures to undertake by the end of its mandate, 2019. In a press release, published on 26 January 2017, the Commission gives a report on the progress. In 2017, the Commission will continue to deliver on the Circular Economy Action Plan. This will include the presentation of a strategy for plastics, an assessment of options for the improved interface between chemicals, products and waste legislation, a legislative proposal on water reuse and a monitoring framework on circular economy.
