Driving Towards Circular Economy
- CEFLEX is the collaborative project of a European consortium of companies and associations representing the entire value chain of flexible packaging.
- The Project Mission is to make flexible packaging more relevant to the circular economy by advancing better system design solutions via the collaboration of companies representing the entire value chain.
- The Project Vision
- By 2020 flexible packaging will be recognised for the significant value it adds to the circular economy. This will be achieved by robustly measuring, demonstrating and communicating the resource efficiency, the waste prevention benefits of flexible packaging and its relevance in a circular economy.
- By 2025 there will be an established collection, sorting and reprocessing infrastructure/
economy developed for post-consumer flexible packaging across Europe. This will be based on end of life technologies and processes which deliver the best economic, technical and environmental outcome for a circular economy.
