The German government has announced that it will not pass on the so-called plastics tax, which will apply from next year, to companies or consumers for the time being.
The instrument, which strictly speaking is not a tax but a method for calculating member states’ annual contributions to the EU budget, was decided upon at the summit meeting of the heads of state and government in July.
From 1 January 2021, member states will have to increase their contributions to the EU budget by 800 euros for each tonne of non-recycled packaging waste (see article from previous Compass).
