Understanding the potential impact of the packaging tsunami

Understanding the potential impact of the packaging tsunami

The packaging industry is about to take a leap into the unknown. The proposed Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR), first presented by the European Commission last November, is currently under discussion. The figurative packaging legislative tsunami will bring big changes to both packaging suppliers and any company that packages its goods. In this expert double presentation, first David Surý, the senior director of the Environmental Protection Section of the Ministry of the Environment, will present the Czech Republic’s framework position on the draft regulation, and then Zbyněk Kozel, CEO of the authorized packaging company EKO-KOM, will summarize the problematic parts of the draft regulation that still need to be discussed.
