How To Prevent Packaging Waste

How to prevent packaging waste

In a response to a public consultation by the European Commission about “Reducing packaging waste – review of rules” (initiative 12263), the European Sustainable Business Federation and its member organisations highlight the importance of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), pointing out that recyclability and recycled content should be considered key requirements for effective EPR schemes.

In order to reduce the production of packaging waste and support SMEs in their transition towards a low-carbon circular economy, Ecopreneur.eu asks the Commission for ambitious goals along the full circle, economic incentives for producers and consumers favouring circular products and services, mandatory Green Public Procurement with integration of circularity, an EU Directive for circular design, and attractive research programs.
