They include increased recycling targets for packaging materials, including plastic packaging waste, which will reinforce the targets on municipal waste and improve the management of packaging waste in the commercial and industrial sectors.

At the event, participants will hear from the European Commission on the impact of the new EU package on circular economy on plastics, as well as participate in parallel workshops on the impact of innovation procurement on the collection and recycling of plastics under different conditions. The event will conclude with a feedback session and a networking drink. Attendance is free but registration is required, as places are limited.
