The EESC issues between 160 and 190 opinions and information reports a year.
It also organises several annual initiatives and events with a focus on civil society and citizens’ participation such as the Civil Society Prize, the Civil Society Days, the Your Europe, Your Say youth plenary and the ECI Day.
The EESC brings together representatives from all areas of organised civil society, who give their independent advice on EU policies and legislation. The EESC's326 Members are organised into three groups: Employers, Workers and Various Interests.
The EESC has six sections, specialising in concrete topics of relevance to the citizens of the European Union, ranging from social to economic affairs, energy, environment, external relations or the internal market.
The European aerosol industry commits to replacing PET aerosols dispensers containing metal valve components with PET aerosol dispensers that contain no metal or non-floatable plastic components except PET, and which fully aligns to the EPBP Design for Recycling Guidelines.
Problems that lead to the introduction of Self/Co-Regulation and the adoption of the Founding Act
Currently PET aerosols dispensers placed on the EU single market usually contain metal valve components. FEA recognises there are two types of plastic recyclers, those working with closed-loops and the those who are general recyclers. The first have problems with metal because they do not have metal detection and separation processes, the second can manage the presence of metal parts.
