Joint Statement on the European Commission’s plan to withdraw the waste component of the Circular Economy package from its 2015 Work Programme

14 signatories, which include business associations, NGOs and federations of municipalities have issued a joint statement this morning and supported the Circular Economy Package that was recently announced to be withdrawn by the European Commission.

14 environmental organisations, including European Biogas Association, have expressed their shared concerns over the possible withdrawal of the long awaited Package that could boost the potential for green job creation, improvements to resource security, environmental protection and inclusive development.

We now call on Members of the European Parliament to support a resolution on the Commission’s 2015 Work Programme which urges the Commission to proceed with the ongoing legislative co-decision process.
