The European plastics industry makes a significant contribution to the welfare in Europe by enabling innovation, creating quality of life to citizens and facilitating resource efficiency and climate protection. More than 1.6 million people are working in about 50,000 companies (mainly small and medium sized companies in the converting sector) to create a turnover in excess of 280 billion € per year.
The four largest national organisations representing the plastics packaging industry in Europe, Elipso (France), IK (Germany), BPF and PAFA (UK) have called on polymer producers to invest more in European polymer production facilities.
