Reducing the use of plastics
The Netherlands Court of Audit looked at how the Minster of Infrastructure and Water Management has sought to reduce the use of plastics. Apart from promoting the recycling of plastic packaging, the Dutch government also needs to make plans to reduce the production and use of other forms of plastic. This is the only way of achieving the objective of a fully circular economy (i.e. an economy in which no new plastics are produced) by the year 2050.
