The European Association of Chemical Distributors (Fecc) acknowledges the Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP) and supports the initiative for a more sustainable approach by ensuring that used resources are kept in the EU economy for as long as possible.

However, on behalf of the European chemical distribution sector, particularly the numerous SMEs it represents, Fecc would like to raise the following points:

  • increasing recycled content in products while ensuring their performance and safety is paramount
  • stakeholders from across the board – private companies, academia, and public bodies – can all benefit from circularity in the distribution sector
  • promoting circular public procurement to empower consumers and public buyers is necessary and must be supported post-COVID-19.
