Plastics in the Electrical Industry (Discussion Paper)

The German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (ZVEI) supports the efforts of the EU Commission to boost the role of plastics in a circular economy. The electrical industry advocates improvements of resource efficiency as well as more efficient material and product cycles. Our member companies offer innovative, energy- and resourceefficient product solutions which already contribute to the implementation of a circular economy and to a sustainable use of plastics. We do not regard electronic products which have reached the end of their life as waste but rather as a recyclable resource.

The present document outlines the key points for discussion about the role of plastics in a circular economy from the point of view of the manufacturers of electrical and electronic products.
