Legislative measures have driven the packaging sector to adopt increasingly ambitious sustainability targets.
By 2025 at least 55 % of all plastics packaging in the EU should be recycled and today many plastic packaging manufacturers, users and brand owners have pledged to achieve this.
Further, recently ,as part of the coronavirus pandemic recovery package, the European Council has approved a new EU tax on plastic packaging wastes. This will be introduced by 1 January 2021 which calls for a €0.80 per kg levy on non-recycled plastic packaging waste, to be paid by member states into the EU budget.
Separate EU member states are establishing numerous measures - among them is the introduction of deposit schemes for plastic bottles, an intensification of separate waste collection, extended producer responsibility schemes etc.
