10.02.23 - Clear position: Planned EU packaging regulation is destructive to the market
The European Union is planning a new packaging regulation, the “Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation”. In principle, the goal of reducing packaging waste and harmonizing recycling throughout Europe is quite positive. However, it is unacceptable that the planned regulation envisages a reusable quota of 90 percent for packaging for large household appliances from 2030 and a quota of 10 percent for e-commerce packaging from 2030, followed by a quota of 50 percent from 2040. Together with other representatives of the paper industry, we pointed this out to Dr. Patricia Peill, member of the state parliament, and Thomas Rachel, member of the Bundestag, at a round of talks held by the “Vereinigte Industrieverbände”.
The present bill fails to recognize that packaging made of paper, cardboard and paperboard can be fully recycled. It has the highest recycling rate of 82 percent in the EU, and in Germany the rate is as high as 89 percent. Around 60 percent of total German paper production is packaging paper. Studies show that their fibers can be recycled at least 25 times. This also applies to corrugated board and machine board used as transport packaging.
Conclusion: It is incomprehensible that the use of renewable raw materials in combination with an exemplary and functioning recycling system should not be put on an equal footing with reusable packaging.
14.02.22 - Statement on the current supply situation
the current situation has eased considerably compared to the last 2 years. Most raw materials are once again available on demand, and the supply of energy is significantly more confident than in the early fall of 2022. Nevertheless, this has resulted in significant cost increases, which will also accompany us into 2023.
A gas shortage did not occur in 2022 and we do not expect this to happen until the early fall of 2023. The security created for you, of alternative fuels are still available to our company.
All other raw materials and supplies that we have kept in stock for you in 2022 through increased warehousing are a burden on our family business, but were unavoidable due to the situation in 2022 in order to maintain security of supply for you.
The freight forwarding sector has also eased and we are pleased to have made provisions for you in this sector as well through the capacity expansion of our regional freight forwarder.
You have come to know us as a reliable supplier in the crisis years of 2021 and 2022. As a family-run company, we will continue to ensure this in the future. We are looking forward to working with you.
