Europe Day commemorates the so-called Schuman declaration of 9 May 1950, which became the foundation of the European Union. Unity and cooperation between the Member States has also helped create many organisations that bring together and represent companies and entire industries. Our subsidiary Chemosvit Folie is a member of several of them.
The name stands for “Circular Economy for Flexible Packaging”. It is an initiative of more than 180 European companies, associations and organisations dedicated to the circular economy for flexible packaging.
All areas of the production chain are represented, from raw material producers to waste management companies. The initiative aims to increase the collection, sorting and recycling of flexible packaging and ensure that all flexible packaging is circular by 2025.
Sustainability is a priority for Chemosvit Folie. Therefore, it supports the five steps to creating a circular economy for the flexible packaging segment, including the collection of packaging for sorting and recycling or the transition to mono-material packaging.
European Rotogravure Association (ERA)
