What do we do

We exchange closely with stakeholders along the value chain to better understand challenges towards a circular economy, find and implement practice-oriented solutions , promote common principles and provide support and know-how where needed.

We engage proactively in political debates at European and national level by providing expertise and data inform discussions on the further development of EPR legislation and a circular economy for packaging.

We support a constructive public dialogue between relevant stakeholders by organising events at EU level.
