Circular economy: faced with the reluctance of the future law, the players are mobilizing

Start
The government's draft bill on the circular economy dated 15 January a "leaked" in the press. Result? More than twenty associations, networks and companies involved in the circular economy sent a letter to the Prime Minister on Monday 4 February asking him to raise his ambitions.
 
Fn response to the government's "reluctance", the players in the circular economy sector are mobilizing because the draft bill does not, as it stands, address the main issues: the preservation of resources and the reduction of waste at the source. They denounce the rough drafting of the six articles of the bill and the principle of massive recourse to ordinances, which would aim to prevent "lobbies" from trying to influence the debates, according to Secretary of State Brune Poirson.
 
The signatories propose about ten measures which, according to them, condition the success of the circular economy law.
These measures concern in particular the governance of the EPR sectors and eco-organisms, the prohibition of the destruction of all unsold and used goods, the fight against plastic, the introduction of a circular tax in favour of repair and reuse, a support fund for reuse and a real right to repair.
 
"We have five articles on the consumer side to say "we've taken a step towards associations", but for the serious things, it will be by prescription (...) without any visibility on their content", regrets Émile Meunier, a lawyer specializing in environmental law. After the release of a Capital survey on M6, Brune Poirson had announced that it would ban groups, such as Amazon, from throwing away their unsold consumables. There is nothing in the law on this subject.
 
Recycling companies say that they are "in the expectation". « Orders don't reassure us about transparency." told AFP Jean-Philippe Carpentier, president of the Federec federation, who was expecting more precise measures on the incorporation of recycled materials into products or the treatment of final waste.
