Circular Economy Package – Information sheet

Accordingly to our will to improve the quality and the pertinence of our services and in the framework of a better tuned information policy, we’re launching a new communication initiative, aiming to alert all our affiliates on sector related issues, when raised in the EU Institutions environment and outside from it.

All sector relevant information will be distributed to our members, as soon as officially confirmed, through a schematic but clear and complete “Fact Sheet” format, indicating:

  • The essentials to be known;
  • The sector expected impact;
  • The link to the full document (when available);
  • The CEI-Bois Priority Area to which the issue is related;
  • The CEI-Bois colleague to whom you are invited to address shall you need more details;
  • The date and the number of the Information Sheet.

To inaugurate the initiative, please find enclosed the Fact Sheet n. 1, related to the new Circular Economy Package to stimulate Europe’s transition towards a Circular Economy, adopted and issued by the EC last Tuesday.

We will try hard to keep the essentials in one page only but as you can easily understand (like in the present case) it will sometimes need a 2 pages set.

We’ll consider this 1st issue as a test and look forward to receiving your remarks, in order to confirm we’re better matching your information expectations, both in terms of content and layout and, if so, improve future issues.

EC proposal to amend EU Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive

On 2 December 2015 the European Commission put forward a Circular Economy Package, which includes a revised legislative proposal on packaging and packaging waste to stimulate Europe's transition towards a circular economy.

The proposal seeks to improve waste management practices, to stimulate recycling and innovation in materials management, and to limit the use of land­filling. It aims to provide a clear and stable policy to allow long-term investment strategies focusing on prevention, reuse and recycling.

Key elements of the proposal include:

  • A common EU target for preparing for re-use and recycling of wooden packaging waste to 60% by 2025;

  • A common EU target for preparing for re-use and recycling of wooden packaging waste to 75% by 2030;

  • A common EU target for preparing for re-use and recycling of packaging waste to 65% in 2025 and to 75% by 2030;
  • Harmonised reporting rules and (calculation) methods on preparing for re-use and recycling (see also Annex)

  • Simplified and aligned definitions;

Measures to promote prevention, re-use and recycling.
