White Paper on Sustainable Resource Management in the EU

by | Jan 31, 2024 | Publications


It is imperative that we take immediate action to address the rampant over-consumption of resources that the current EU law fails to address. We must recognise this issue, as the consumption of resources is expected to soar in the coming years. Therefore, the EU must introduce a new and binding Directive on Sustainable Resource Management that establishes comprehensive and science-based targets for reducing resource consumption.

In a collective voice, RREUSE and its co-signatories have joined to support an EU Directive on Sustainable Resource Management. 

This white paper was written collaboratively with the négaWatt Association, CAN Europe, ECOS, EEB, the European Youth Forum, Friends of the Earth Europe, Zero Waste Europe, and Seas at Risk.
