Gathering in the nonpartisan group # EC2022, 150 professionals from civil society, academia, business, the public sector, and the voluntary sector are campaigning to make the circular economy the center of the presidential election program.
This is their platform.. The Circular Economy Waste Management Act celebrates its two years. The first major French law on this subject will significantly change our economic system. Some of the measures adopted for the first time in the world have already been applied. The ban on the disposal of unsold goods encourages donations to structures that combat instability and the social and solidarity economy. Creating a repairability indicator protects consumers’ purchasing power. Plastic packaging of fruits and vegetables is prohibited.
The law extends the manufacturer’s responsibility for waste management by strengthening the polluter pays principle. New sectors have emerged, including construction waste, sporting goods, toys, leisure goods, DIY, and even cigarette butts, which are the main causes of illegal dumping. The law puts France at the forefront of the transition to a circular economy. Foreign investors were not misunderstood. But we are just the beginning of the road. The President-elect needs to address two key issues at the same time: ecosystem migration and reduced inequality. A true social project, the Circular Economy addresses these two challenges.

Let’s close the loop in 2022 and for the next few years! Gathered within the nonpartisan group # EC2022, we are 150 experts from civil society, academia, business, public sector, and voluntary sectors, campaigning for the circular economy at the heart of our presidential election program. .. .. We call on candidates to commit themselves to keep our economic system transforming.
Let’s support recycled materials to put an end to the waste of our resources. To achieve this, phase out the introduction of products and packages made entirely of virgin materials. Waste is an outstanding local resource. Create jobs in the heart of our territory and create an impact on the demand for recycled materials. Promote second-hand goods that support the purchasing power of French people. Reduce your VAT rate to products that incorporate durable, reused, repaired, or recycled materials.
We call on candidates to commit, which keeps our economic system changing
States and local governments need to set an example and take the lead. Public procurement should enable industry relocation by systematically prioritizing readjusted products in France. The sustainable supply of raw materials must be a reality. For Sovereign France, we must regain control of strategic metals by utilizing waste. Launching a major investment plan for a new factory is essential.
Candidates for the presidential election promise to continue to make France a global laboratory for the circular economy.
