Where are we with the implementation of the EU Waste Laws? – 15 April – Webinar

In 2018, EU governments and institutions struck a historic agreement introducing what many hailed as the world’s most ambitious set of laws and targets to boost recycling and cut waste.

However, two years, most EU countries have missed the deadline for the transposition of these laws into national legislation.

Whatever happened to Europe’s circular economy ambition?

For this reason, we join forces with the European Parliament Intergroup on ‘Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development’ and other stakeholders to take stock of progress made so far and outline what is at stake. The event is hosted by MEP Franc Bogovič, Chair of the Bioeconomy Working Group of the European Parliament.

Join the event and help us remind policymakers that there is #NoTimeToWaste.
