EERA members offer full support of the targets described in Circular Economy Action Plan and the Green Deal and can substantially demonstrate a proven track record of innovations and scale. Our industry needs full support from the European Commission when it comes to maintaining and improving current directives that are so fundamental to the future of our businesses. In the first address to the commission, Mrs von der Leyen, made many references to the environment and the importance of growing Europe with significant emphasis on integrating economic growth with the protection of our climate and environment.
EERA members share the same aspirations for the future. Now is not the time to water down previous targets. Indeed, we would appreciate a more stringent enforcement of the objectives laid down in the WEEE Directive.
Covid 19 will require us to make many changes to how we do things, but it should not deflect from what we wanted to achieve before it entered our lives so significantly.
