Packaging: Waste or valuable resource?

Brussels, Belgium | 1st of September 2023

The European Commission published its proposal for a Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR) in November. The ongoing policy discussions are on the measures to reach the ambitions of the Green Deal and for all packaging to be reusable or recyclable by 2030.

There is an intrinsic necessity to better link the EU circular economy agenda with food security and safety-related challenges. The packaging industry can support the EU’s sustainability ambitions for recyclable packaging by encouraging innovations and circular actions along the whole value chain.

How can the revised PPWD secure investments in sustainable food packaging solutions? And what role can consumers play when it comes to the implementation of the PPWD in practice? These are some points that will be discussed in September 2023 (date to be determined) during the EUCircularTalks.
