The shipbreaking and recycling society

Belgium, Brussels

The hearing is part of the preparation of an initiative opinion on the same subject.

To meet the goals of the EU ambition to become a "recycling society" the Commission has asked external experts to consider a feasible system for incentives, based on the polluter-pays-principle for end-of-life ships and applicable to all ships entering EU ports. That system will be presented at the end of this year. The EESC intends to issue an opinion on this subject.
