A draft report by a member of the European Parliament's environment committee calls on the European Commission to propose legislation to prevent the unnecessary use of plastic packaging, requiring the material to be fit for reuse and recycling when it is first designed.
The report by Belgian right-winger Mark Demesmaeker, which will be subject to amendment before adoption, is the Parliament's initial response to the 'plastics strategy' unveiled by the EU executive in January.
In additional to echoing the Commission's vision of fully recyclable plastics by 2030, the paper suggests the Brussels-based assembly should call on firms to “couple their brand identity [and] use their marketing power to promote and drive sustainable and circular consumption patterns”.
