Metal Packaging Europe positioning throughout the revision of WFD & PPWD
Metal Packaging Europe constructively engages with the European institutions on the Circular Economy Package, including the revision process of the WFD and PPWD.
We consider the following points as crucial to encourage the transition towards a Circular Economy in Europe: a single harmonised measurement point that ensures real recycling, ambitious recycling targets based on an ex-ante impact assessment, reference to multiple recycling, and safeguarding the PPWD’s Internal Market legal base.
