Evaluating the Circular Economy Action Plan: where does the EU really stand?

Three years after the adoption of the Circular Economy Action Plan, the European Commission has released a report assessing the results achieved so far. ECOS recognises the progress made in several areas, but we also believe that many measures are delayed, inadequate or lacking, or far from being completed. Most importantly, an integrated EU Product Policy based on circular principles is urgently needed to address all the life-cycle stages of products, from design to circular end-of-life management. Therefore, even though the overall balance is positive, ECOS considers it premature to conclude that the CE Action
Plan is “fully completed”.

ECOS is co-funded by the European Commission and EFTA
