Media Partnership - The revision of the EU's packaging and packaging waste rules

The revision of the EU's packaging and packaging waste rules: putting the product life cycle at the heart of the circular economy

The upcoming revision of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (PPWD) offers an opportunity for sustainable packaging solutions to advance the EU’s climate neutrality and circular economy objectives.


The panel discussion gives the opportunity to stakeholders from all spectrums to explore what the new rules should focus on in order to achieve the objectives of the European Green DeaI. It is essential to rely on evidence-based solutions at a time when the European Union is working to make its economy truly circular. This is why Ramboll will present its latest study which challenges the common perception that reusable tableware found in European quick-service restaurants for in-store consumption has lower environmental impacts than current paper-based packaging.


This event is organised by the European Paper Packaging Alliance (EPPA). EPPA represents food and foodservice packaging companies from across Europe. Their priority is to provide paper-based low carbon and health-safe products with a low environmental impact and improved recycling solutions to the European population. EPPA supports science-based EU policies that foster sustainable and efficient use of resources and recognises the major role that packaging, as essential infrastructure, can play in that common objective.
