EXPRA is actively participating in different initiatives and projects, as for example the Advisory Board of LIFE EPS SURE project (for transforming fish boxes into new food packages) the Steering Committee of Food SCP RT and the Steering Committee of the CEFLEX Project, to name some, contributing with our expertise and knowledge and trying to find efficient solutions.
During the fall General Assembly meeting in November, EXPRA welcomed its 26th member, namely the Icelandic Recycling Fund.
The three organizations strongly believe that the EU waste proposals represent a unique opportunity to enhance the transparency and data accuracy in waste management practice across the EU.
This is why online sales should be explicitly covered under the new EU waste legislation.
Very interesting were the presentations of the external guests: Sander Defruyt, Lead Manager, New Plastics Economy, EMF and Pascal Leroy, MD of the WEEE Forum. Defruyt explained the recent development of the New Plastic initiative and noted that the industry has taken the initiative with respective commitments, and that they are currently trying to involve the governments as well.
These were of course related to the recent developments rgarding the CEP and especially the Waste legislative proposals and the respecive activities planned under EXPRA 2.0 project, which were presented by Weber Schandwick consultanats and acively discussed by the members.
A new Cooperation member, the 26th one - IRF (Iceland) was approved by the General Assembly, thus further enlarging the EXPRA family in the north direction.

However, a large share of these boxes end up in landfills throughout Europe.
