This workshop on Packaging in the retail sector will liaise technical experts in retail to address the challenges and opportunities faced by retailers as regards packaging in the circular economy. Speakers will present the best practices via three different angles, answering the following question:
What are the success factors enabling and the regulatory and investment barriers hampering waste prevention, re-use and design for circularity?
The workshop is divided in three sessions:
- Waste prevention: Finding alternatives to current use of packaging
- Reusable packaging and deploying reuse models
- Design for circularity: Creating safe and circular packaging.
The results of these EU Circular Talks (the expert workshop and online dialogues) will contribute to the retailers’ implementation toolbox on Circular Packaging.
