Hosted by MEP Massimiliano SALINI (EPP, Italy)
The European Commission has introduced the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR) to ensure that all packaging becomes reusable or recyclable in an economically viable manner by 2030.
This initiative aligns with the Green Deal and Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP) 2.0, emphasizing the significance of reuse and waste prevention.
While the Commission focuses on waste prevention, it is crucial to understand that reuse should complement recycling rather than overshadow it, as recycling has already demonstrated its effectiveness, particularly in the corrugated sector.
To uphold the primary objective of the PPWR, which is to reduce the negative environmental impact of packaging and packaging waste while enhancing the internal market’s functionality, The Parliament and FEFCO are organizing a dinner debate in the European Parliament in Strasbourg on September 13th.
This gathering aims to address key points to prevent any distortion or loss of focus. It is essential to maintain a realistic and positive approach toward the goals of reuse, avoiding potential counterproductivity.
While waste prevention measures are crucial, they must also be evaluated considering market restrictions.
Join us on September 13th at The European Parliament in Strasbourg for a dinner debate hosted by MEP Massimiliano SALINI (EPP, Italy), where we will delve into these important topics and promote sustainable packaging practices. Together, we can work towards reducing the environmental impact of packaging waste while fostering a thriving internal market.
