swop 2024’s Green Power Zone paves the path to sustainability

From an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) perspective, the global green packaging sector has a promising outlook for 2024. The evolution of ESG principles in recent years has catalyzed substantial growth opportunities for the packaging industry. Numerous global fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) brands have incorporated ESG strategies into their packaging, aiming to inspire corporate values, drive innovation and create compelling green brand narratives.

In March of this year, the European Union unveiled a series of new packaging regulations, encompassing targets for packaging reduction, restrictions on the permanent use of chemicals, promotion of reuse and refill initiatives, and mandates for recyclable packaging materials with specific recycling objectives. In particular, by 2029, the EU aims to ensure that 90% of single-use plastic bottles and metal beverage containers are collected through separate recycling systems. These market trends will further drive the development and application of green packaging materials, innovative packaging designs, and circular packaging economic models!
