Flexible packaging industry: Open consultation launched

CEFLEX, the Circular Economy for Flexible Packaging, is an initiative collaborating with the entire value chain in order to make flexible packaging in Europe circular by 2025. Designing packaging suitable to be collected, sorted and recycled after use is thus a fundamental step.

With the participation of 80 stakeholders and the input of more than 100 experts the “Designing for a Circular Economy Guidelines” were developed.

The guidelines have been conceived:

  • to build an understanding of end of life processes,
  • give practical support and advice on circular economy design principles and
  • make design choices for recyclability clear.

All non-CEFLEX stakeholders are now also invited to give their feedback in order to enhance and refine these guidelines and so CEFLEX launched an open consultation.

Publication of the finalized guidelines is foreseen in the first quarter of 2020.
