FPA Develops Roadmaps to Assist Companies in Moving Toward a Circular Economy

The roadmaps are designed for FPA members, policymakers, NGOs, consumer product companies, consumers, local municipalities, and other associations to advance sustainability and circular economy packaging efforts.

The five roadmaps are:

Moving Toward a Circular Economy via Packaging Collection

Moving Toward a Circular Economy via Packaging Design

Moving Toward a Circular Economy via Packaging End Markets

Moving Toward a Circular Economy via Packaging Reprocessing

Moving Toward a Circular Economy via Packaging Sortation

Across the packaging value chain, we see a renewed focus on collecting and recycling packaging materials to foster a circular economy. To close the gaps and move the industry forward with flexible packaging aligned to a circular economy framework, roadmaps are needed to guide key players involved in the packaging supply chain.

While not all actions in the roadmaps apply to every company, individual organizations should:

• Look for insights, direction, and priorities for their own individual organization;

• Identify collaborative relationships to help achieve their goals;

• Identify how to work with the FPA to influence future industry opportunities;

• Identify technology and investment opportunities;

• Understand how their organization plays a critical role in the system of driving flexible packaging to a circular economy; and

• Customize the roadmaps for their organization to set strategic goals for 2025 and 2030.

FPA partnered with PTIS, LLC and Priority Metrics Group (PMG) on the development of the roadmaps and the recent research report, Flexible Packaging Path to a Circular Economy, that explores the future of sustainability and flexible packaging through 2030. It provides information, knowledge, and insights related to flexible packaging and sustainability, circular economy, legislative trends, impacts to the industry along with key outcomes, and actions to enable the industry to align with circular economy principles where materials are collected, sorted, processed, and turned back into new products or packaging.


PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO (Sept. 27-29, Las Vegas Convention Center) will reunite the packaging and processing community, offering new products, technologies and solutions, while implementing up-to-date protocols for a safe and successful in-person event. Attendee registration is now open.
