Environmental labelling requirements for food packaging

Cover for RG3 Environmental labelling requirements for food packaging

This paper looks at the current EU harmonised legislation and future proposals, as well as how 16 EU Members States and the UK have approached these challenges.

Companies seeking to access multiple markets are posed labelling challenges. Differing approaches by various EU Member States and the UK in seeking to achieve reductions in packing waste have led, in turn, to different labelling requirements on the provision of information on the composition, appropriate disposal, and environmental impact of food packaging materials. These challenges fit into the broader discussion about the environmental impact of the product as a whole and how this is to be communicated to the consumer.
