Fecc reply to EC Consultation on Circular Economy - 2015

In December 2014, the European Commission (EC) announced the withdrawal of its legislative proposal for the review of waste legislation, to be replaced by a new, more ambitious, initiative for the promotion of the circular economy by the end of 2015.

In this context, the EC launched a public consultation in May 2015 covering five areas:
• production;
• consumption;
• markets for secondary raw materials;
• sectoral measures; and
• ‘enabling factors for the circular economy’, including innovation and investment.

Fecc responded to the public consultation and the response is available here.
