Ministers want Circular Economy saved but back Commission's better regulation push

EU foreign and European affairs ministers said they do not want the European Commission to axe its proposed Circular Economy package but still backed a decision on Tuesday (10 February) to do just that.

Meeting in Brussels on Tuesday, the ministers from the 28 EU member states rubberstamped the Council’s decision, which includes provisions to roll back proposed environmental legislation.

Environmental campaigners Monday night wrote to Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in a last ditch effort to save the waste, recycling, landfill and incineration laws from the axe. 

But, as EurActiv reported last month and was confirmed again today, the executive plans to ditch the package and re-table it, despite the objections of MEPs and EU ministers.
