CLEPA joins European coalition proposing a circular vision for the revision of the Waste Shipment Regulation
Automotive suppliers acknowledge their responsibility to deliver products that are sustainable from cradle to grave. In line with this approach, CLEPA has joined the cross-sector group of associations and company representatives on their position on the revision of the Waste Shipment Regulation.
The alliance believes that waste prevention, product and material lifetime extension and reuse should play a pivotal role, followed by high-level and multiple recycling. The technology for many complex waste materials is becoming available to achieve this and circular innovations are increasingly being deployed. EU waste legislation should be adapted to make sure that:
- Used products are considered a high-value resource and only classified as waste if value retention strategies are not.
- Waste management activities aimed at reintroducing recycled material into a circular economy are scaled
