EuPC would like to thank all of you for your active participation during our 2023 conference in which we specially focused on the innovative power of our industry.
The conference brought together representatives from the entire plastics value chain and was marked by lively debates and open exchanges about 𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐛𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐳𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧, 𝐜𝐥𝐢𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞 and 𝐬𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐬.

📌With nearly 50.000 converting companies in Europe, we are an important and indispensable part of the backbone of the European industry.

We embrace such a circular economy where material choices are made on extended LCA’s and fact-based information.
In Lyon, we discussed and agreed upon the need for transition to an even further circularity in our industry, without forgetting the challenges at end of life.
📣𝐖𝐞 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐟𝐲 𝐝𝐢𝐚𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐮𝐞𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐩𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐢𝐜 𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐡𝐨𝐥𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐜𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐟𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐄𝐮𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐞. Landfills are identified to be a major source of littering. Political decisions at European and Member States level are needed to close them and also to divert more waste streams from incineration and cement kilns to become available as valuable input for circularity. Increased high-quality mechanical recycling capacities and complementary upcoming chemical recycling solutions are needed to supply the high-quality raw materials needed for improved sustainability of the entire European industry.
📆𝐒𝐀𝐕𝐄 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐃𝐀𝐓𝐄 : EuPC is looking forward to seeing you at “A Circular Future with Plastics 2024” in 𝐁𝐫𝐮𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐬, on 𝟏𝟏 & 𝟏𝟐 𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐞 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟒!
