    Goals / Remit

    RREUSE is the European network of social environmental enterprises whose members are national and regional networks with activities in reuse, repair and recycling. RREUSE represents approximately 110,000 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) workers and over 150,000 volunteers working at around 1,100 social enterprises.

    RREUSE proactively participates in the process of shaping the European environmental legislation on sustainable management of resources, prevention of waste, reuse, repair, high-quality recycling, sustainable product policy and consumption patterns.

    Our mission is to lobby at the European level for stronger policies in favour of repair and reuse of end-of-life products so as to avoid that products become waste too early. In addition RREUSE also engages in social economy files with a focus on green employment linked to social inclusion and training initiatives for people who face barriers in accessing the mainstream labour market.
