CIRC-PACK final event

Innovations in plastic(s) for a circular economy


The European Green Deal sets out ambitious goals for plastic packaging products in EU, including having all products on the market be reusable or recyclable by 2030.

Ambitions of such magnitude require innovation; luckily we are not starting from scratch. European projects funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, such as CIRC-PACK, have worked over the past three years to develop the innovations needed to make plastic packaging waste more circular.

The project will host its final event as the 32nd edition of ICLEI Europe’s flagship Breakfast at Sustainability’s series. It will share key insights and engage with policy makers, city representatives and technical experts on how best to make bio-based and recyclable plastics the norm in the plastics industry.

The event will be the perfect occasion to learn more about the European strategy for plastics in a circular economy, hear from cities tackling plastic waste and discussing with companies what the challenges and the possible solutions are.

The event is free of charge.
