Joint Statement by Packaging Value Chain Industries on the EU Waste Package

In view of the presentation of the European Commission’s work programme 2015 on 16 December 2014, a coalition of industries active in the packaging value chain has sent a joint statement on the EU Waste Package to President Juncker, First Vice-President Timmerman, other relevant Commissioners, Member States, Members of European Parliament and media.

Our industries support the objective of further transitioning to a circular economy and see the review of the Waste Acquis as an opportunity, subject to further improvements, to ensure better regulation and implementation of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive and Waste Framework Directive.
