Paper packaging in Europe
Industries are committed to reducing the environmental impact of their activities and are looking to make much greater use of paper and cardboard, which are the most recycled packaging materials in Europe. Paper packaging is lightweight, mostly renewable, and produces fewer CO2 emissions than plastic. The importance of packaging in creating a positive customer experience cannot be overstated, and an increasing number of shoppers across Europe prefer to buy products with eco-friendly packaging.
The consumer goods sector accounts for a significant share of global packaging demand. Online retailers have been working on sustainability for several years now, and rising eCommerce sales are driving demand for paper packaging. In the European Union, both revenues and consumption of paper packaging from online retail activity are projected to increase. Elsewhere, companies in the food retail industry continue to widen their range of paper and paperboard packaging to meet the needs of the modern eco-conscious consumer.
