GEIR: UPDATE


2020 – the year of new green resolutions! Christian Hartmann, GEIR President


Many see the new year as an occasion to start afresh while taking good resolutions. The new European Commission seems to be adopting a similar stance, embracing 2020 with a charged climate- and environment-oriented agenda!


After a long year of 2019 entirely focused on the institutional reshuffle, filled with European Parliament elections, Commissioners’ appointments and dragging on hearings, the new Commission eventually entered office in December 2019. And it did with a bang, presenting only a few days later its new ‘Green Deal’ – the EU growth strategy marking the convergence of traditionally antagonistic interests: economic growth and environmental and climate protection. Throughout the upcoming months and years, the Green Deal rationale will infuse all new EU initiatives. This will notably be the case for the future Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP) to be released jointly with a new Industrial Strategy early March 2020.


Showing its eagerness to deliver on its green agenda, the Commission additionally published end of December 2019 a roadmap indicating the challenges it wishes to


tackle with the new CEAP. A very effective way to ensure that all waste-interested stakeholders will start 2020 reflecting on its content. GEIR and its members certainly did so in order to submit feedback, focusing notably on the following aspects highlighted in the roadmap: waste generation reduction, modernisation of certain waste laws, increase of domestically treated waste.


Our comments to the roadmap will be closely linked to the other decisive EU enterprise on our mind in early 2020. This year will indeed see the Commission officially set in motion its feasibility assessment of setting regeneration targets for waste oils. We do hope that in addition to the great business and environment case that re-refining offers, the Green Deal rationale will also positively influence the outcome of this assessment, if ever needed.


So early on in the new year and already so many environment-focused initiatives – 2020 certainly starts with a green bang!
