European Parliament kick starts Circular Economy

Last month, the European Parliament Environment Committee decided for ambitious measures to boost recycling, cut landfilling and curb food waste, thus kick-starting the Circular Economy.
The share of waste to be recycled should be raised to 70% by 2030, from 44% today, while landfilling, which has a big environmental impact, should be limited to 5%, said Environment Committee MEPs on Tuesday, as they amended the draft EU “waste package” legislation. They also advocate a 50% reduction in food waste by 2030.
