Circular Packaging: 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.
