Over the past decade ''Waste Packaging'' has increased by 20%. This accounts for over 40% of plastics, and 50% of paper materials used in Europe.
To tackle this growing challenge, the EU has set out proposed revisions for the existing Packaging and Packaging Waste directives. This includes a 15% reduction of waste packaging per member state by 2040, and sectoral climate neutrality by 2050.
A number of concerns have been raised however, with industrial voices claiming such measures could lead to an increase of carbon emission and water waste.
During this event, speakers will examine the proposed revisions, what challenges can be expected and what alternative solutions are available.
