RREUSE urges EP to condemn withdrawal of circular economy package

Joint letter sent to MEPs in advance of a European Parliament resolution on the item

The European Commission presented its Work Programme 2015 on December 16th and announced that the Circular Economy Package will be withdrawn.

In a last effort to fight the withdrawal, RREUSE has co-signed together with other organisations, a statement that calls on MEPs to oppose the withdrawal within a resolution they are preparing, to be voted on in Strasbourg next week.

With Environment Commissioner Karmenu Vella mentioning that the replacement for the scrapped circular economy package would consider the different national situations and may contain more non-legislative policies, RREUSE fears that the new proposals will be less ambitious than what was on the table.
