What does the CEP mean for Repak Members?

The CEP contains revised legislation on waste and a comprehensive plastics strategy, both of which impose new obligations and targets for Repak and its members and essentially set the agenda for the next ten years and beyond. Repak is involved in regular consultations with the at EU level and with likeminded packaging compliance schemes in other EU Member States. 

In this regard, Repak has already developed initiatives, campaigns and strategies to help meet our obligations, including the Repak Members’ Plastic Pledge and our new Design Guide for Recycling.
