Climate and sustainability goals will be the driving force behind the new European Commission (EC) during the legislative period 2019-2024.
On 11 December 2019, shortly after taking office, the new executive presented its big plan – the European Green Deal, which seeks not only to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050 but also introduces the EC’s plans to propose or review numerous environmental, energy and financial legislation to make Europe more sustainable.
In this light it is important for legislators to make evidence-based decisions. In this article CEWEP highlights how waste management in general, and Waste-to-Energy (WtE) in particular, can contribute to the European climate mitigation, circularity, and sustainability goals.
