Business-NGO letter urges MEPs to oppose EC's recycled content calculation method in plastic bottles

23 April 2024

With this letter, we express our support to the ENVI committee's decision to back a motion for a resolution objecting to the Commission's draft Implementing Decision on the calculation of recycled content for plastic bottles under the Single Use Plastics Directive (SUPD). The outcome of the ENVI committee vote on 18 April was the first step in the right direction, taking the file to this week’s plenary’s discussion, which should also greenlight the motion. The undersigned organisations – business organisations, companies active along the waste management value chain and civil society organisations - strongly support this motion.
