This mission aims to close the raw material circle by:
- Improving recycling rates with incentives for the development of more efficient collection systems and recovery technologies, and ensuring manufactured products are designed to be easily recycled after use.
- Setting EU-wide material-specific quotas for recycling secondary raw materials.
- Involving industry advisory councils to make the recycling sector an attractive proposition for both businesses and workers.
- Enforcing a digital ‘product passport’ to list a product’s components, as well as how to repair and dispose of it, to make recycling easier, and to ensure transparency throughout the product cycle, which would inform consumers about their choice.
