Developments on the EU legislative environment

How the legal situation for packaging is influenced by current EU legislative developments.

In June 2021 we had our first virtual Innovation Days, during which we featured a live session on the current EU legislative environment. In this session, David Buhé, Policy Officer for Packaging waste at the European Commission, provided us with valuable insights on the topic.

By watching the recording, you will learn about:

  • The current EU legislative environment and the potential impact of the Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP) as well as the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (PPWD)
  • The need for tangible scientific evidence to influence different forms of recycling
  • How to best develop reuse
  • How recycled materials will become more integral, but are not the whole solution
