MAY 2022
 
Jump aboard… May’s COMPASS
 
Last month, we were glad to be travelling and meeting people at events once again. 

We attended the Green Alley Award in Berlin, whilst our colleagues from H2 Compliance took part in the Pharma Industry Awards in Dublin.

Both events recognised the pioneers and top achievers who are boosting the circular economy and contributing to a sustainable future. If you missed the celebrations, we’ve gathered some highlights for you here!

Now that it’s becoming easier to travel again, are you already planning your holidays? This month’s Focus on… looks at Egypt where projects are happening to reduce pollution in tourist areas.

Last month, Landbell Group published its Annual Performance Report. The report highlights various activities taking place around the world to establish EPR and increase investment in reuse and recycling.

You can read more about these global activities here in COMPASS. Closer to home, we also flag up important changes for producers in Germany and the UK.

For now, we hope you enjoy May’s COMPASS. Perhaps you’ll read it with a nice cup of coffee and find out about Spain’s potential plans for single-serve coffee capsules… cheers!
