The EU’s Green Deal and its Circular Economy Action Plan, Industrial Strategy, Data Strategy, and Zero Pollution Ambition will impact the full value chain of businesses operating on EU markets – covering due diligence, eco-design, recycling, waste treatment, substances of concern, industrial clustering, emissions, and water use to name a few. Batteries will be directly impacted.
Cambre’s Circular Policy Scans take an in-depth look at how EU legislation affects your business activities and where your key opportunities lie: from targets to bans, with phase-outs and exemptions in between.
