Due to the problem of excessive use of plastic packaging and, first of all, plastic bags, the European Commission recently published the Plastic Strategy, which aims to reuse or recycle all plastic in the European Union by 2030
Previously, in addition to Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste in 2015, the EU has identified ways to reduce the use of lightweight plastic bags that are a source of negative environmental impact. The main methods are the introduction in countries of compulsory payment of plastic bags at retail outlets and the establishment of maximum plastic consumption at the national level.According to the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism of Montenegro
, in accordance with the dynamics of the development of this "plastic" Strategy, Montenegro will fulfill its obligations under these directives, using the best practices of developed countries of the European Union. Recall that all EU member states must adopt the relevant bills in order to reduce the consumption of light plastic bags. Such measures may include: reducing the use of plastic at the national level, limiting the use of polyethylene in various areas of activity, or financial components, such as paid plastic bags.
"Montenegro, as a candidate country for EU accession
, will fulfill all its obligations in accordance with these directives, as well as adhere to the overall development strategy of the countries of the European Union.Our further work will be aimed at implementing one or perhaps two recommendations: reducing the maximum annual of plastic consumption in the country to a level of 90 plastic bags per person by the end of 2019 (a decrease of 50 percent compared to 2010) and 40 packs/ person by the end of 2025 (a decrease of 80 percent compared to 20 10 years), as well as by the end of 2018 plastic bags for carrying, which are issued at the ticket offices at outlets, are to be paid", said the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism of Montenegro
