The European Commission has initiated a new stakeholder consultation process to revise the Packaging Directive.
In addition to reworking the packaging essential requirements (see article in last month’s newsletter), the Commission is seeking solutions to tackle the problem of over-packaging and to reduce the overall amount of packaging waste.
Eunomia, the consultancy which compiled the report on essential requirements, will now lead a one-year project to propose packaging waste reduction measures.
Landbell Group is involved in the corresponding stakeholder process and has already attended two workshops with more to come over the next twelve months.
The Commission is expected to propose its draft for the revision of the Packaging Directive in the second half of 2021.
