Looking beyond the current "take, make and dispose” extractive industrial model, the circular economy is restorative and regenerative by design. Relying on system-wide innovation, it aims to redefine products and services to design waste out, while minimising negative impacts. The new EU’s Circular Economy Package (CEP) has been published in the EU’s Official Journal, meaning the legislation will enter into force at the start of July. The CEP will see new targets set for the recycling of municipal waste, which the EU estimates accounts for between seven and ten per cent of the total waste generated in the EU. Member states will now be expected to reach a recycling rate of 55 per cent by 2025, 60 per cent by 2030 and 65 per cent by 2035.
Drivers for the packaging industry are changing.
Requirements are changing beyond containment, protection and information. Packaging has to do more – appeal, engage, brand protection, smart capabilities - take account of consumer preferences and supplier technologies and be sustainable. Never has there been a more important time for an arena that discusses, formulates and delivers responses to the changes facing the packaging industry.Futurepack brings together leading experts from the packaging industry, major ecommerce players and retailers, brands to bring about positive change. By discussing the future of the industry and providing timely insight on how to identify and achieve growth in the packaging industry it is the forum where innovation connects with and protects the environment.
