Orgalime represents European metalworking, mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering industries and comments on the Commission’s waste legislative package against the sector´s experience with the implementation of the waste stream specific Directive 2012/19/EU on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC and its over 40 implementing measures on our industries, as well as our broader vision on how Circular Economy can work for European Manufacturing. 

Orgalime generally welcomes the tabling of the waste legislative proposals as a first concrete action within the new Circular Economy Package. Focusing on the end-of-life stage of products and having the right framework in place end-of-pipe is the starting point for the transition to a more Circular Economy (see Orgalime’s position paper on the Action Plan Circular Economy of 18 April 2016) [more in download]
