Two years after adopting the Circular Economy Package, the European Commission, Parliament and Council have reached an agreement on waste-processing legislation to pave the way for a circular future for Europe. Agreements were reached on four legislative proposals addressing waste, packaging waste, landfill and electronic waste.

The coming plastics strategy will aim to improve framework conditions for investment and innovation, and help the industry become more circular and resource-efficient, bringing more jobs and further growth. It's the first comprehensive policy response to the plastic challenge, tackling design, manufacturing, use and disposal.
