CONT and ENVI held a joint exchange with the European Court of Auditors on their review of the EU's response to the growing problem of plastic waste. The exchange took place on Thursday 7 January between 15:15 and 16:15.
Plastic waste represents a sizeable share of total waste with packaging in particular accounting for over 60 % of plastic waste. The review examines issues such as packaging design, extended producer responsibility, recycling, shipment and trafficking of waste. It provides key findings to improve the implementation of the 2018 Plastics Strategy.
