Pro Carton supports challenge to SUP definition

Pro Carton, and other representatives of the paper and board value chain, have signed a ‘Position Paper’ and sent a covering letter to the European Commission and their consultants working on the SUP directive. The main objective is to prevent cellulose being defined as a plastic (!) …which would have far-reaching impacts on the whole value-chain.

Importantly, these documents demonstrate that the mills and converting sector are totally aligned and they send a strong message to the European Commission regarding our views on the latest direction the SUP debate has taken.
