The aim of the partnership is to contribute to the development of the Danish society towards a circular economy, where articles and products do not contain problematic substances and materials that are hazardous to health and the environment. In this sense, problematic substances are substances that fulfil the criteria for the REACH candidate list (REACH, Article 57) and are referred to as substances of very high concern (SVHC). A focus point of the partnership is to provide assistance to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and enhance their possibilities to reduce the use of problematic substances and substances that constitute a barrier for the recycling of products and materials.
