Resource efficiency and sustainability
Sustainability, environmental friendliness, the reduction of plastics and the recyclability of packaging are topics that present the packaging industry with a wide variety of challenges. Packaging materials are a valuable resource that must be collected and preserved. Therefore, building and expanding the circular economy are the goals of the coming years. ILLIG's mature and sustainable packaging solutions with the guiding principle of "Circular Thinking" have long supported this. A position paper published at the end of October by the associations of plastics manufacturers, the plastics processing industry and plastics machinery manufacturing, the waste disposal industry and plastics recycling calls for the circular economy and resource efficiency to be driven forward. Here, the associations call for, among other things, recycling-friendly product design, better separation and sorting of waste, and increased use of recycled materials in plastic products.
