High-level event: ‘Building a Circular & Climate Neutral Economy: Reaction to the November Circular Economy Package’ On behalf of CLG Europe’s Materials and Products Taskforce. Wednesday, 1st February 10.00-11.30 CET (Online).

13 January 2023

The European Commission released its latest set of circular economy policies on 30 November 2022. This included key files such as the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation. The purpose of this event is to react to the release of these pieces of legislation and provide a space for key stakeholders to give initial responses to the new legislative initiatives, including policymakers, businesses and third sector organisations. The focus of this event will be on the new policies and how they fit into the wider movement towards a more circular European economy. We hope the event can offer a collective space to discuss the policies whilst also giving a progressive business view. This event will be hosted by CLG Europe’s Taskforce on Climate Neutral and Circular Materials and Products. The Taskforce was launched with the aim of driving forward policy action on sustainable materials by bringing together a group of progressive businesses across sectors and value chains.
