Cepi, the European association representing the paper industry, has announced a new alliance called 4evergreen. The aim of the alliance is to boost the contribution of fibre-based packaging in a circular and sustainable economy that minimises climate and environmental impact. The alliance will increase awareness about the benefits of fibre-based packaging materials, advocate for EU legislation supporting product design for recyclability and call for the development of optimised collection systems and appropriate recycling infrastructures.

Metsä Board, a leading European producer of premium virgin fibre-based board and member of the Metsä Group, has published a web-based impact report that highlights the importance of sustainable packaging. Metsä Board has prepared the report in cooperation with experts from AskKauko, a Finnish start-up company in the software industry that develops next-generation impact communication solutions.

PET bottle becomes PET bottle becomes PET bottle - this is no longer a utopia, but a real possibility. With a new special wash-off adhesive for labels, HERMA makes it possible for very pure PET granulate to be produced during recycling, without any annoying residues of paper or film labels or adhesive residues. Such closed material cycles - instead of the usual downcycling - are among the most important requirements when it comes to sustainable management. The fo-cus has long since included not only PET beverage bottles, but also, for example, detergent bottles, soap dispensers and cans for food and cosmetics. The HERMA pressure-sensitive adhesive with the designation 62Rpw is distinguished by its reliable adhesive strength and high resistance to moisture.
