The European Commission aims to transform Europe into a more circular and resource efficient economy. PlasticsEurope fully supports this objective.

On 16 January 2018, the Vice-Presidents of the European Commission Katainen and Timmermans presented the "European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy”, part of the transition towards a more circular and resource efficient economy. 

In this context, PlasticsEurope’s voluntary commitment sets a series of ambitious targets and initiatives up to 2030, within a spirit of commitment to future generations. 

"Plastics 2030” contains a set of ambitious targets and initiatives representing the plastics industry contribution to achieve a fully circular and resource efficient Europe. PlasticsEurope is excited to engage in this transformation towards a new sustainable economic model.
