The 3R decree, a step towards reducing single-use plastic

La fin des emballages en plastique à usage unique d’ici 2040, selon la loi anti-gaspillage pour une économie circulaire

France has pledged to put an end to single-use plastic packaging by 2040, under the anti-waste law for a circular economy (AGEC law). This law has 5 main aims: to get rid of disposable plastic, to better inform consumers, to fight against waste and for solidarity-based re-use, to act against programmed obsolescence, and to produce better.

To achieve this, the government has adopted the “3R” decree, which sets targets for reducing, reusing and recycling plastic packaging by 2025.

The decree includes measures such as eco-modulation, bans on certain products, deposits for reuse, support for innovation and research, and consumer awareness-raising.

The “3R” decree is a key step towards a circular economy. It reduces the impact of single-use plastic on the environment and health. HANOVA is committed to this step by using recycled plastic and optimising its production processes.
