Policy Framework on biobased, biodegradable and compostable plastics: a Roadmap

To promote the transition to a circular plastics economy, a clear policy framework is needed on the use of biobased, biodegradable and compostable plastics. This will foster greater consistency in developing European policies, increase environmental protection, reduce consumer confusion, enhance investment certainty within the internal market, and encourage competitiveness and innovation.

The European Commission would like to hear your views on the roadmap Policy Framework on biobased, biodegradable and compostable plastics that has been published on the European Commission’s portal. The roadmap is open for feedback until 27 October 2021 (midnight CEST).

This feedback will be taken into account for further development and fine tuning of the initiative. The Commission will summarise the input received in a synopsis report explaining how the input will be taken on board or, if applicable, why certain suggestions cannot be taken up.
