The Netherlands is a pioneer in the field of recycling and the movement towards more circular packaging. However, this is not only a national issue; sustainable packaging goes beyond national borders. For this reason the KIDV has taken the initiative to set up PackForward, an international movement for sustainable packaging.


 In order to help different stakeholders in the packaging chain to move forward with sustainable packaging, cooperation and knowledge sharing on a European level is needed. The PackForward website gives an overview of important themes that influence the sustainability of packaging: from the production process and the use of product-packaging combinations to the waste phase. In addition, PackForward provides an overview of European research institutions, network organizations and their projects.

Together with partners Fost Plus, Gront Punkt Norway and Valipac, the KIDV has taken the initiative for PackForward. Other organisations can join this initiative.
