The partnership consists of concrete targets that will need to be met within the next five years:
- The creation of common, circular design principles for food and non-food packaging, including e-commerce packaging
- All plastic packaging must be reused or recycled in an economically feasible way and consists of a minimum of 30 per cent recycled material by 2025.
- Reduce the use of plastic packaging, including contributing to testing new solutions and increasing the prevalence of recycled packaging.
- Reduce 50 per cent of certain single-use plastic takeaway products by 2026 in the retail sector.
Progress will be assessed against a baseline of 2018. The partnership means that the retail sector will contribute substantially to fulfilling the targets outlined in the EU’s packaging directive and the Danish government’s Climate Plan from June 2020.
