To implement the Directives that are part of the Circular Economy Package, which the European Union adopted in July 2018, Italy has published the following decrees in its Official Gazette:
The new decrees will allow Italy to strengthen its system of extended producer responsibility, stop the generation of waste, define new supply chains and progressively increase the recycling of municipal waste to 65% and reduce the use of landfills to less than 10% by 2035.
Commenting on the new legislation, Alberto Canni Ferrari, head of ERP Italy and a circular economy specialist, explained: “With the entry into force of these decrees, Italy is aligning itself with the countries that most effectively deal with the recycling of materials and is aiming to introduce sustainable production and consumption models to revive the economy.”
To support its customers, ERP Italy has organised special training sessions for companies on the implementation of the above legislative decrees. The seminars will explore a range of topics, including the concept of circular economy and the development of sustainable production and consumption models.
