Packaging the future

The EWWR Coordinator Zero Waste Scotland and Scotland Europa are delighted to invite you to a panel discussion taking place in Scotland House Brussels on Thursday 16 November, to kick off European Week of Waste Reduction. It is increasingly clear that single-use packaging, both plastics and paper-based alternatives, are driving environmental harm and perpetuating a throwaway culture. We cannot simply recycle our way out of this crisis, but rather we need to invest and innovate to create workable solutions for the packaging sector.

Against the backdrop of Scotland and the EU’s ambitious targets for net zero and the circular economy, we are excited to convene a panel of change-makers from business, policy, and citizen groups working in Scotland and across the EU. Together we will discuss both the challenges and opportunities as we navigate the path towards a re-use system for packaging.

This event will consist of a panel discussion, followed by a networking reception. Please register for this event via this link.
