European Strategy for Plastics: deadline for pledging campaign to boost recycled content extended to 30 September 2018

In the context of the European Strategy for Plastics, as described in Annex III, the European Commission is promoting an EU-wide pledging campaign for the uptake of recycled plastics.

The European Commission calls on stakeholders to come forward with ambitious voluntary pledges to boost the uptake of recycled plastics and to ensure that by 2025, ten million tonnes of recycled plastics find their way into new products on the EU market. The pledging campaign is open to companies and industry associations. You can submit your plastics pledge using this template. The deadline has been extended to 30 September 2018.

Moreover, if you have pledged or committed actions related with other areas or sectors of the circular economy (waste reduction, green public procurements, etc.) you can submit your commitment to the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform.
