The EU must keep the Internal Market legal basis to achieve the best outcome for a circular economy in packaging
Position paper - Environment, Sustainability & Energy
17 April 2023
The undersigned industry associations express their strong support for the European Union’s ambitions for a circular economy. The European Commission proposal to transform Directive 94/62/EC on Packaging and Packaging Waste (PPWD) into a Regulation, and the choice to maintain an internal market legal basis (Article 114 TFEU), is a step towards achieving that.
