All I want for Christmas…
 
… is a circular economy!

Despite this year's difficulties, now is a time of joy and reflection on the year we’re leaving behind. Looking back at what we’ve reported in COMPASS in the past 12 months, it’s been a good year for… circularity!

Many countries around the world are introducing or expanding their EPR legislation. This year, we’ve gone on a journey from Austria to Tunisia.

In this issue of COMPASS, we take you to more places turning to EPR for circular solutions and look at what is ahead of us next year.

To wrap up the year, Landbell Group is also rewarding companies that are working hard for a better future - from the Pharma Awards to the Green Alley Award.

And what is one of our CEO’s desires for the future? Find out in CEO Corner!

Lastly, here is our seasonal reminder that the first COMPASS of 2023 will be out in February.

See you then… and enjoy the holidays!
