EU directive poses a risk to the green transition and future jobs

The green transition - with its focus on renewable energy such as wind power - and our increasingly digitalized society are leading to a higher demand for a variety of minerals, such as lithium, cobalt, copper, nickel, aluminium, and phosphorus. In this light, 16 March 2023 was an important date. On that day, the European Commission published a proposal for a regulation to ensure a secure and sustainable supply of so-called critical raw materials (CRMs). The proposed regulation is an important piece of the puzzle for the transition in Europe. At the same time, we see major risks of collision with a directive, which could slow down the development of the sustainable society of the future.

New rules lead to extended producer responsibility for packaging waste management

As a consequence of the Government's adoption of the Producer Responsibility for Packaging Regulation (2022:1274), extended producer responsibility for waste management of packaging will enter into force on 1 January 2023. The aim of the regulation is to reduce the amount of packaging, limit the harmful environmental impact of packaging, reduce litter, and achieve recycling targets. The regulation is aimed at ensuring that packaging waste is handled acceptably from health and environmental perspectives, and that the producers assume operational or financial responsibility for collecting and treating packaging waste.
