French prevention and Ecodesign plan

The prevention and Ecodesign plan is a 5-year-plan containing goals and objectives which are to be achieved on time. It is possible to reflect on the plan after 3 years. The aim of the plan is to reduce the use of non-renewable resources, increasing the use of recycled materials, and increasing the recyclability of its products which are treated in the French treatment facilities. All producers are to deliver a plan in the summer of 2023 for each registered wastes stream separately. It is possible to create a collective plan with companies in similar industries or comply individually.
