Case Study

An analysis of the potential alignment and divergence in US and EU circular economy policy


A global investment company wanted to better understand how Europe’s forward-looking plastics and circular economy policies may influence US environmental regulations under the Biden administration and affect pricing on a proposed transaction.


We provided a detailed analysis of EU’s extended producer responsibility regimes, circular economy package and EU and Member State-level plastics regulations along with a read through of US federal and state-level legislation. Our process was driven by desk research, primary materials analysis and over three dozen interviews with EU and US policy makers and stakeholders.


Our client used our analysis to build new factors into their pricing models, which allowed them to better calibrate their strategy and pricing for the transaction.
