Resource efficiency

The Directive refers to resources in recital 6, which mentions that optimal resource saving should be ensured in the scope of the prevention of waste batteries and accumulators and the subsequent prevention of the pollution of the environment thereof.

Although the recycling efficiency targets are meant to support resource saving, ‘resource efficiency’ is not mentioned as such in the Batteries Directive but should be included in the evaluation. Resource efficiency aspects of batteries and their content along the life cycle of batteries are thus also in the focus of this evaluation.
