Brussels, 9 February 2021

Aluminium, Glass and Steel Packaging Industries jointly welcome the Plenary Vote on the Circular Economy Action Plan 2.0 REPORT in support of permanent materials.

The Association of European Producers of Steel for Packaging (APEAL), European Aluminium, the European Container Glass Federation (FEVE) and Metal Packaging Europe, members of the Permanent Materials Coalition, welcome the plenary adoption of the European Parliament’s own-initiative report on the European Commission’s Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP) 2.0. A cornerstone of the European Green Deal, the CEAP 2.0 is designed to strengthen the EU Economy, protect the environment and ensure that the resources used are kept in the EU economy for as long as possible.

The Permanent Materials Coalition is pleased to note that Members of the European Parliament have highlighted four key issues to improve the functioning of the Circular Economy for packaging.Permanent Material Loop
