World Packaging Organisation News
The World Packaging Organisation believes that packaging should be designed to fit its original purpose, while taking all expected recovery methods into perspective. This has to be done to fit into existing or planned waste management schemes. The world is heading towards a recycling society and the packaging community together with all players in the delivery chain must act accordingly. Packaging is part of the solution to achieve tomorrow’s sustainable society.
