METRO's Commitment to the Circular Economy
Position Paper to Circular Economy / Plastics Strategy
With today's Plastics Strategy the European Commission takes another step along the road started in December 2015 with the publication of the Communication "Closing the loop - an EU Action Plan for a Circular Economy". Within this context, METRO AG wants to reiterate its commitment to the objectives set out in the action plan, that is, the "transition to a more circular economy, where the value of products, materials and resources is maintained in the economy for as long as possible, and the generation of waste minimised".
