With measures along the entire life cycle of products, the new Action Plan aims “to make our economy fit for a green future, strengthen our competitiveness while protecting the environment and give new rights to consumers.”

Building on the work done since 2015, the new Plan focuses on the design and production for a circular economy, with the aim to ensure that the resources used are kept in the EU economy for as long as possible.

The plan and the initiatives therein will be developed with the close involvement of the business and stakeholder community.
