Finland and Italy oppose the restrictions on single-use packaging

European Union

Dec 13, 2023

Finland and Italy have called on governments preparing positions on the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR), to oppose the tough restrictions on single-use packaging, along with proposed targets for reuse, in a joint statement seen by Euronews which was circulated among diplomats.

The two countries call in the paper for the removal of targets for reuse and the cancellation of all restrictions on single use packaging. The Italian and Finnish position differs from a compromise "general approach" — a political agreement between the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Council — on the PPWR proposal, also circulated among EU diplomats.
