EGMF & EPTA Position Paper on Circular Economy Action Plan

On the occasion of the Stakeholder Conference held this week, EGMF and EPTA reiterate their full support to the European Commission’s ambition to realise a circular economy.

Quality, safety, resource efficiency and environmental performance are key priorities for garden machinery, outdoor power equipment and power tools industries. Manufacturers are deeply committed to achieve ever more sustainable and innovative production systems and products. They are already applying main principles of the circular economy.

EGMF and EPTA have developed a joint position paper on the different initiatives and measures announced in the Commission’s Circular Economy Action Plan. This paper provide comments on the future sustainable product policy framework, empowerment of consumers, green public procurement, and chemicals strategy.

This position paper follows up our previous position paper showcasing the implementation of the circular economy principles within in our industries. It is available here.
