Common position paper on waste directive method for the calculation of recycling rates

A coalition of CECED, DIGITALEUROPE, EERA and the WEEE Forum has issued a position paper calling on the EU legislator to secure consistency in the calculation of recycling rates. We strongly believe that the European Commission's proposal around the calculation method for recycling rates will not support the transition towards a circular economy, because it fails to provide an accurate method to calculate the recycling rates, and therefore fails to encourage the development of high quality recycling, in accordance with EN 50625 treatment standards.
