Join us

For many years, EUROPEN has proven to be an authoritative and trusted voice of the packaging supply chain for the European Commission and other stakeholders. Decision-makers increasingly encourage unified industry viewpoints on proposed legislation.

We are all aware that environmental policy within the EU has economic and practical impacts on businesses. Joining EUROPEN is a cost-effective way for companies and national organisations to monitor and inform developments in that policy area. EUROPEN works for the achievement of non-conflicting European and national packaging & packaging waste measures based on a full understanding of the issues, close co-operation between all sectors of the packaging value chain and avoidance of barriers to trade.  

As a multi-sector, multi-material organisation, we work to ensure the proportionate, fair and equal treatment of the packaging supply chain as a whole. I believe the broad scope of our members is a strength and provides balance – we are better, together. EUROPEN members are identified as companies which support a united industry association, dedicated to satisfactorily resolving the environmental challenges facing the packaging chain in an active and co-operative manner without favouring any specific packaging material or packaging system.  

Membership of EUROPEN is open to any company with an economic interest in packaging or packaged goods, and we currently have in our membership the producers of packaging materials, converters and brand owners using packaging materials.  National industry groups with similar objectives to EUROPEN are also encouraged to join us.
