The new Circular Economy Action Plan (Position paper)

The German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association (ZVEI) supports key aspects of the EU Commission's "New Circular Economy Action Plan - For a cleaner and more competitive Europe" (CEAP). Striving for a circular economy is rightly at the top of the political agenda. But the upcoming transformation will only be truly "sustainable" if its implementation strikes a balance between competitiveness, environmental and climate protection and social responsibility. It is essential that such complex challenges are analysed and evaluated at an early stage in dialogue with all actors along the value chains. Doing so, possible regulatory activities can be sensibly weighed and designed - and thus could actually be described as "sustainable".

This paper provides a first assessment of the most important discussion points from the perspective of the manufacturers of electrical products.
