Develop sustainable packaging, improve existing packaging in terms of recyclability and learn how recyclability can be measured. What does the German minimum standard say? Why is all this important? Because politicians at EU level are exerting pressure and packaging development often takes time.


The European Packaging & Packaging Waste Regulation, or PPWR for short, is expected to be adopted at the beginning of 2024. Among other things, it will ban the sale of sales packaging with a recyclability of less than 70 per cent from 2030. In addition, recycled content in plastic packaging is to be taken into account in the EPR fees ("licence fees"). Once adopted, the PPWR will come into force immediately throughout the EU, without much creativity freedom in the individual member states.


This means that those who bring recycling-friendly packaging onto the market will benefit twice over with the best conditions for unhindered access to EU markets and the utilisation of future (financial) incentives for packaging that is easy to recycle.
