EU Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy

Event description:

Every year, we Europeans consume 25 million tonnes of disposable plastic, which is mostly discarded as waste, less than 30% being sent for recycling. A significant quantity finds its way into our oceans through littered waterways, flood plains, and coastlines. Plastics in every guise have regrettably become an accepted convenience in everyday life, from transport to construction, from telecommunications to kitchen goods, and from food packaging to healthcare equipment. As part of its legislative work, the European Economic and Social Committee will hold a public hearing to take stock of the suggested measures and to learn how to build upon the experience and views of relevant stakeholders and players in this domain. The outcome and conclusions of the hearing will provide relevant civil society's input into the preparation of the EESC opinion on the proposed Strategy and Directive.
