Information Map - Towards circular flexible plastic packaging in 2025

Publication date: February 11, 2021
Organisation: KIDV

Why should the value chain for flexible plastic packaging become circular, what prevents this from happening and how can stakeholders achieve it? This Information map is based on literature and one thinking session with experts from the Community of Practice (CoP) Flexible Packaging, lead by the Netherlands Institute for Sustainable Packaging (KIDV). The CoP wants to improve the dialogue between stakeholders on how to work towards a circular value chain for flexible plastic packaging. The primary focus in this roadmap is on the Dutch market situation. The value chain consists of brand owners and retailers, material producers, technology suppliers, waste collectors, sorters and recyclers, Extended Producer Responsibility Organizations (EPRs), governments, NGOs, knowledge institutes, and consumers.
