ECMA fully endorses Position Paper released by EPPA

May 15, 2020 - 11:37

THE HAGUE, Netherlands , May 15, 2020 (Press Release) -ECMA fully endorses the Position Paper released by the European Paper Packaging Alliance (EPPA) presenting compelling arguments that polymer-coated paper fibre products should not be included in the scope of the Single Use Plastics Directive.

The Position Paper outlines the contribution that the paper packaging industry makes to the European economies and outlines how the original intent of the Single Use Plastics Directive was limited to products falling within 86% of total disposable products found on beaches in the European Commission – which by definition excludes ‘cups, food trays, food wrappers and drink containers’ which make up just 0.27% of marine litter.
