A circular plastics economy in Europe

Faerch is proud to have joined the European Plastics Pact, bringing together pioneering companies and governments to accelerate the industry’s transition towards a circular plastics economy in Europe.

When it comes to packaging, plastics have many benefits. Packaging keeps food safe and protects it, and packaging reduces food waste. However, by using plastics, we are also faced with challenges related to waste and littering. Plastic reuse and recycling trends have failed to keep pace. Many products are simply not designed for recycling, and collection and sorting infrastructures are still not fully in place. The European Plastics Act brings together leading countries and private organisations from the entire plastics value chain to accelerate the circular plastics economy in Europe through cooperation, harmonisation, and connection. 

As an industry, we fundamentally need to change the way we produce, use, and dispose of plastics. This can only be achieved by bringing together all the links in the value chain under a shared commitment to take action. The European Plastics Pact unites everybody, organisations and businesses alike, to set ambitious targets to reduce the use of virgin plastic products, to raise collection and recycling capacity in Europe for plastic packaging, and to boost the use of recycled plastics in packaging.

At Faerch, we design food packaging that protects food and keeps it safe while reducing food waste. What's more, we are committed to taking the lead on circularity in food packaging. On average, we use 70% recycled content in our PET trays. We recycle trays back into new trays – without compromising on food safety. And, as the world’s only integrated tray recycler, we are doing this on an industrial scale. By signing the European Plastics Act, we can help accelerate the transition towards a circular plastics economy.
