Joint civil society comments on the revision of the EU POPs regulation

The European Commission is proposing to adopt new limit values for persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in waste. Arnika, IPEN, HEAL, WECF and other health and environmental groups urge the European Parliament and Member States to support stronger limit values for POPs in waste than the current proposal, whose weak limits undermine the Stockholm Convention and contribute to POPs recycling that is incompatible with the European Green Deal.
