Renewable packaging for a fossil-free Europe: Paper Packaging Day
Last week, Fibre Packaging Europe - our umbrella alliance - organised a discussion with key stakeholders about the revision of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (PPWD) and the crucial role the paper packaging industry has to play in supporting the European Commission to reach its goal of a climate-neutrality by 2050.
PRESS RELEASE: New study shows that making reusable containers for takeaway obligatory will undermine the EU’s environmental goals

Why putting the product life cycle at the heart of the circular economy is important for reaching the EU's climate neutral ambitions
The European Green Deal aims to make Europe the first climate neutral continent in the world by 2050. It is a huge opportunity and challenge, which will impact on all industries and all sectors of the food supply chain, including the paper packaging industry.
