Plastic Bans Politics & Legislation

Anti-Waste Bill Adopted in France

The joint committee (CMP) composed of 7 deputies and 7 senators met Wednesday January 8 to decide on the anti-waste bill for a circular economy: a unanimous agreement was reached.

This result confirms the constructive work carried out by parliamentarians with the Government.

It reaches a balance between the versions of the Senate and the National Assembly.

Elisabeth Borne, Minister of the Ecological and Inclusive Transition and Brune Poirson, Secretary of State to the Minister of the Ecological and Inclusive Transition, welcome this agreement which reflects the Government’s desire to work in a consensual spirit and salute the quality work carried out throughout the discussion of the bill, which now contains more than 130 articles.

  • Arkema, Neste and Covestro, Braskem, US Survey and BASF

  • Agilix, Amazon Climate Fund, McDonald’s Biofuel, e-Nable, Huhtamaki Startups, African Parks, Siberia

  • Chemical Recycling Commitments & Incentives, Deep Sea Plastic, Greece SUP Ban, NY Composting

Elisabeth Borne said:

The anti-waste and circular economy bill constitutes one of the pillars of our action for the ecological and united transition, it is the demonstration that we can reconcile simple gestures and profound transformations. I salute the quality of the work carried out with parliamentarians and local authorities, which will allow this bill to quickly unfold in the daily life of our fellow citizens.

Brune Poirson said

  • Biobased Plastics – Advantages & Disadvantages

  • Chemical Recycling – Advantages & Disadvantages

  • What is Circular Packaging? Watch Now!

  • Compostable Plastics – Advantages & Disadvantages

  • Plastics Recycling – Advantages and Disadvantages

The adoption of the anti-waste bill for a circular economy is a major step for the ecological transition of our country. It will allow our society to get out of disposable everything, to change our production model, to involve consumers more and to contribute to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. I would like to thank the members of the House and the senators for the work carried out throughout the parliamentary review, beyond partisan divisions.

The bill, now validated by the Joint Joint Committee (CMP), will be definitively adopted by the Senate and by the National Assembly in the coming weeks.

Casting in order of appearance:

  • The Ancient regime  … played by the plastics industry;
  • Napoleon … played by Brune Poirson;
  • Louis XVI … played by …To be confirmed
