A new Circular Economy Action Plan

For a Cleaner and More Competitive Europe

In March 2020, the EU Commission presented its second action plan for the circular economy. It comprises more than 40 individual measures which focus on the further development of waste management and a new product policy. The BDI supports the basic objectives of the EU Action Plan Circular Economy. However, the instruments proposed in the EU Action Plan must take into account not only ecological goals but also the economic and social dimensions of sustainability.
