Metal Packaging Europe have produced a video that explains the key recent changes in European packaging legislation and the net-positive for the metal packaging industry. They report that the shift in policy is a crucial starting point for a successful transition to a circular economy, in which the value of products, materials, and resources is maintained in the economy for as long as possible. The legislation encourages an entire re-think on the use of packaging materials that are not recycled or very difficult to recycle. Packaging strategies will need to be reassessed to be acceptable for the market going forward.
