Policy Recommendations on Engaging Consumers in Circular Packaging

Against the backdrop of growing packaging volumes, these policy recommendations aim to support effective packaging avoidance and reuse strategies as well as the highest possible recycling of the remaining single-use packaging. Recognising that the diverse needs of consumers are often not sufficiently taken into account when developing new circular solutions, the eleven recommendations aim to close packaging loops from a strong consumer perspective. The recommendations (in German) are the result of an intensive exploration and discussion on effective measures to address urgent behavioural challenges in packaging.


Call for Collaboration

Sustainable Behaviours Are Key to Driving Positive Change!

In 2019, the European Union committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050 in order to combat climate change and mitigate the associated risks. This may seem like a distant future, but in reality, we should accelerate our pace and urgently improve our actions if we are to achieve this goal. As the Union’s most ambitious strategy to date, the EU Green Deal sets out a comprehensive plan for all actors in society to contribute to a sustainable and inclusive future for all. Read our newsletter for further insights on how sustainable behaviours are key to driving positive change!
