FEAD Event on Plastic Strategy - 27 February 2018

Please save the date for an event “Plastics Strategy: Challenges and opportunities of recycling”, which will be held on 27 February, 16.00 – 19.00, in Brussels! This event is organised as a EURACTIV Forum event supported by FEAD. Registrations are now closed.

FEAD welcomes the publication of the European Commission’s  Plastics Strategy as part of a broader Circular Economy initiative. The transition from a linear to a more circular economy is vital if the European Union is to develop a sustainable, low carbon, resource efficient and competitive economy in the future.

FEAD believes there is an urgent need for action at local, European and global level. Will the Plastics Strategy remain a vision or will each actor of the plastics value chain take responsibility of turning the actions into reality? Which remaining hurdles to make it happen can be identified? Did the Plastics Strategy foresee measures to ensure resilient markets for the increased volumes of recycled plastics? Will market forces alone do the trick? Will voluntary industry commitments be enough? Is there sufficient legal certainty to trigger the much needed investments? These and many other questions will be discussed during a lively debate.

So do not miss out on what promises to be a most interesting event in Brussels and benefit from an excellent platform for valuable exchanges with people who make the circular economy happen!
