Leading European companies submit support for bioplastics to EU

Leading European companies, including the NNFCC, have submitted a document of support for bioplastics to the European Commission's public consultation on the 'bio-based economy for Europe: state of play and future potential', in collaboration with participants in the Dutch Bioplastics Value Chain.

The document, which has been written by PA Europe and signed by leading European companies – including the NNFCC, Purac, Novamont and Natureworks – recommends the specific inclusion of bioplastics as a key opportunity and deliverable of the proposed 'European Strategy and Action Plan on the bio-based economy by 2020'.

The European Union has taken an important step towards ushering in the era of low-carbon, resource efficient, sustainable and inclusive economic growth in Europe with the decision to formulate a 'European Strategy and Action Plan on the bio-based economy by 2020'.

As the European Commission rightly acknowledges, the bio-economy has the potential to contribute not only to tackle global problems such as climate change, carbon dioxide emissions reduction and sustainable economic growth, but also to furthering research and innovation excellence in Europe, and more sustainable agricultural policies linked to regional and rural development.

For more information, please contact David Webber, senior partner and advisor at PA Europe.
