NMWE joins 100 associations warning that the PPWR risks disrupting the EU Single Market

14 December 2023

Natural Mineral Waters Europe have joined EUROPEN and 100 other European associations in warning EU Member States that the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR) risks undermining the EU Single Market.

Proposed measures to allow Member States to implement a patchwork of unique restrictions around Europe would severely disrupt value chains.

Our sector has already raised the alarm around potential measures which could undermine the viability of SMEs without providing any positive impact related to the environmental goals the PPWR is supposed to achieve.
