Traceability of plastic packaging for provision of recyclate information

Aim for circular economy of packaging through traceability

The Circular Economy Action Plan and the requirements of the EU's Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR) set high requirements for traceability of packaging and materials in the value chain. This influences the packaging (data) management of all involved stakeholders in the packaging value chain, as structured data plays a key role here. 

GS1 standards as the key to more transparency

With the help of GS1 standards, companies can create the transparency required by regulations regarding packaging and the usage of recyclates, while striving for packaging circular economy. Your processes become more efficient and a data-driven circular value network is created.

Circular Plastics Traceability Guideline provides information on implementation

The new publication GS1 Germany Circular Plastics Traceability shows you how you can enable traceability with structured data and GS1 standards and make your contribution to a future packaging circular economy. You will gain insights into the guideline and learn about the advantages of the approach recommended therein. Together we will discuss possible next steps and implementation options in everyday business.

Combining established standards and new requirements - driving forward the circular economy for plastic packaging

In our webinar, you will gain an initial insight into how data-driven circular value networks for packaging can be created with the help of GS1 standards. You will learn how you can utilise the content of the GS1 Germany Guideline in a targeted manner and use it to make your processes more efficient. At the end of the session, you will know the first steps that can make it possible for packaging to become circular in the future.
