EEB | Waste Framework Directive review: why we need waste prevention targets now

Your substances


Alongside partner NGOs and representatives of waste treatment operators to create this joint paper, the EEB exposes the lack of effectiveness of existing waste prevention policies and calls for European level quantitative waste prevention targets, as well as effective national measures, within the revised EU Waste Framework Directive.

This joint position paper also highlights manufacturers’ role in reducing resource use and the size of the circular economy loop. Lastly, it offers some clarity on the differences between waste prevention and recycling, emphasising that recycling is lower in the European waste hierarchy than prevention.
