With the European Commission's Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP) introduced in 2020, the EU is advancing its sustainability goals. The new Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR) is a cornerstone of this plan. Proposed in 2022 to replace the older Directive 94/62/EU, the PPWR focuses on environmentally friendly packaging, its reuse, recycling, and more. All packaging in the EU will need to adapt to these regulations, starting from 2025 with ambitious milestones over 15 years.
Several countries, like France, are already setting the pace with laws to reduce waste, emphasizing the need for the entire packaging supply chain to adapt.
Join the 2nd Symposium on the Safety of Packaging Materials Supply Chain and the Demand for Reuse & Recycling. With expert speakers from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, the US Food and Drug Administration, and top academia from the US and EU, this symposium is a deep dive into the new PPWR's impact.
After a successful first meeting in Dijon, Paris, this next session further explores the safety and sustainability of packaging in the EU.
