EU Parliament takes steps to tackle packaging waste

Circular economy

France – In a decisive move to address the growing packaging waste crisis, the European Parliament has adopted its position on new EU-wide rules on packaging.

These comprehensive measures aim to reduce packaging waste, encourage reuse and refill options, and ensure better collection and recycling of packaging materials.

The proposed measures involve a combination of regulatory changes, technological advancements, and consumer behavior modifications. The ban on certain types of packaging and the introduction of reuse and refill options will encourage the adoption of more sustainable packaging practices. Additionally, advancements in recycling technologies will play a crucial role in ensuring that packaging waste is processed effectively.

Reducing packaging waste

The implementation of these new rules has the potential to significantly reduce packaging waste in the EU, contributing to a more sustainable and circular economy. By reducing the amount of waste generated, the EU can conserve resources, minimize pollution, and protect the environment.
