EEB | Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation: open letter and factsheet

Your substances


In this letter to the European Parliament and the European Council, civil society organisations and reuse businesses across Europe express their concern that misinformation and intense lobbying from the single-use packaging industry and the take-away sector are undermining the need for reuse as a driver for waste prevention, resource conservation and climate protection in the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR).  At a time where it is crucial to tackle emissions, pollution and resource use in all sectors, this regulation represents a critical opportunity for the much-needed transition towards more circular packaging systems .

Together with the accompanying factsheet, the documents show why the focus of decision-makers should remain firmly on the key objective of the PPWR: reducing packaging waste and improving the environmental performance of this increasingly wasteful sector.
