Joint Statement on the European Commission’s plan to withdraw the waste component of the Circular Economy package from its 2015 Work Programme

The signatories of this statement, which include business associations, NGOs and federations of municipalities, wish to underline their support for the Circular Economy package as it would bring about substantial environmental, economic and social benefits. Although there are various ideas about how to improve the current set of proposals, as they were tabled by the European Commission on 2 of July 2014, the Circular Economy Package already provides a strong basis for democratic discussion during the legislative process.
