This metric is in line with the targets set by the European Union in the Plastics Strategy 2030 (The objective is that all plastic packaging on the European Union (EU) market should be recyclable or reusable by 2030, that the consumption of throwaway plastics should be reduced and that the deliberate use of microplastics should be restricted). This same demand includes the Global Plastics Declaration initiated by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to make it a market standard for packaging to be 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025, to which many companies have signed up.
We will assign a ""YES"" to this question if :
- The company sets a target that all its plastic packaging for own-brand products will be 100% recyclable or reusable by 2030 in accordance with EU requirements.
We will assign a "NO" if :
- The company declares its intention to make all its plastic packaging of own-brand products 100% recyclable or reusable by 2030 in accordance with EU requirements, but does not specify the deadline.
