This discussion paper sets out two measures that should be integrated in the new Circular Economy Action Plan – Europe’s strategy to cut waste and save resources:

  1. Setting a headline target to halve EU material footprint by 2030, broken down into specific material sub-group targets and plans, and supporting the development and monitoring of complementary indicators on land, water and carbon footprints as part of the circular economy monitoring framework.
  2.  Setting a cap on absolute waste generation per capita, driving direct actions towards waste prevention of both commercial and municipal waste, including specific sectoral targets in key areas such as for packaging waste, food waste, construction waste, electronic waste and hazardous waste.
