The draft workplan, which leaked before the official presentation, was heavily criticized by amongst others environmental NGO’s and the recycle sector. Especially the withdrawal of the Circular Economy package and the maternity leave directive could count on criticism. During the presentation, Vice-President Timmermans stated these proposals, when withdrawn, will however be replaced by more ambitious legislation.
