About the challenge:

Each year, 90 billion tonnes of primary materials are extracted and used globally, with only 9%

being recycled. With the Circular Economy model, we get to enjoy the benefits of safe

packaging without damaging the environment.

The Circular Economy has been identified as a major commercial opportunity and could

support the development of new industries and jobs, reducing emissions and increasing the

efficient use of natural resources.

Final theme and parameters to be announced at the kick off.
