Zero Waste Europe provided a response to the European Commission’s consultation to the draft regulation concerning the placing on the market of plastic materials and articles with recycled/secondary plastic content intended for use in contact with food.
Zero Waste Europe welcomes the initiative of the European Commission to start the process to set-up binding food waste reduction targets across the EU. Food waste is a multifold problem that not only causes environmental and climate damage but is also morally unacceptable.
Therefore, it is essential to properly address this issue by adopting efficient and ambitious targets for the coming years.
