PlasticsEurope targets political ignorance on packaging


PlasticsEurope has hit out at the fog of political ignorance that clouds politicians’ attitudes to plastics packaging. The statement follows the organisation support for a new study by independent Austrian consulting firm Denkstatt entitled ‘The impact of plastic packaging on energy consumption and GHG emissions’.
“Politicians in general do not understand the role of packaging – whatever the material it’s made of – for safeguarding food and the health of consumers,” said Michel Loubry, PlasticsEurope’s programme director for energy efficiency and climate protection. “And on top of that, when it is made out of plastics, it is even worse.”
“This is why we plan to disseminate to the politicians, the retailers and the food industry the results of the Denkstatt study.”
