The Circular Economy Package has introduced a fundamental shift in packaging and packaging waste policy, making circularity the reference point. With the adoption of the legal framework, focus now shifts towards implementation. Together with other partners in the value chain and thought leaders, Metal Packaging Europe will kick-off 2019 with insights on best practices for ongoing policy initiatives and potential stumbling blocks for the Circular Economy as it unfolds.

Join us for a two hours event, followed by a networking cocktail.

The programme can be found here.

We look forward to welcoming you there for a progressive exchange and wait for your registration by 18 January 2019.
