On 25 February 2021, the PETI and ENVI Committees will hold a joint public hearing on plastics and waste management in the circular economy. EU Citizens are very concerned with the impact of plastics on the environment and in particular with the end-of-life stage of plastics.

The hearing will look into the implementation, pitfalls and loopholes in the current legislative framework as regards plastic waste management and also into new measures, which could be implemented in the framework of the New Circular Economy Action Plan to reduce the impact of plastic waste on the environment.
