The European Commission has published the final report on the effectiveness of the packaging essential requirements.

The report was conducted by the consultancy firm, Eunomia, following the revision of the packaging directive in summer 2018. The revised directive obliges the European Commission to examine whether to reinforce the essential requirements to further improve the recycling of packaging by the end of this year.

The Commission will use the report to develop its own proposals for the revision of the essential requirements and will also submit proposals for a revision of the directive in line with further preventive measures required by the EU Circular Economy Action Plan by autumn 2021.

Landbell Group is actively engaging in the stakeholder process, which started with an online workshop conducted by the Commission with Eunomia on 26th May.
