New regulation proposal on packaging and packaging waste

European Union

Dec 18, 2023

The European Council has reached an agreement on a proposal for a regulation on packaging and packaging waste. The aim is to tackle the increase in packaging waste generated in the EU, while harmonising the internal market for packaging and boosting the circular economy.

The proposal requires all packaging to be recyclable and the presence of substances of concern to be minimised. It also sets labelling requirements to improve consumer information, sets binding re-use targets, restricts certain types of single-use packaging and requires economic operators to minimise the packaging used.
