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.
Close to a hundred leaders from the plastics packaging industry came together last week at the EuPC offices Brussels to listen to senior experts speak along the theme of “The Future of Plastics Packaging”. From the European Commission to Danone, from the Circular Economy to innovations in food packaging, the perspectives of speakers were engaging and the breadth of subjects covered was impressive. An informed audience heard about the newest thinking in Plastics Packaging in nine distinct presentations by industry, NGO and institutional representatives, followed by critical discussions and debates with the speakers.
