ACR+ has co-signed a "Call to support binding recycled content targets in beverage bottles" sent on 21 November 2018 to the European Council.

More than 25 organisations and companies (amongst two ACR+ members, Retorna and Reloop) urge the European Council to support the binding target of at least 35% recycled plastic in beverage bottles by 2025. This target, voted by the European Parliament on 24 October 2018, is “instrumental” in the achievement of the objectives of the Single Use Plastics (SUP) Directive and in igniting the “much supported” transition towards a more circular economy, the coalition says. It also says it would be a “historical step”, correcting a “much overdue market failure” to not value recycled material more while unlocking much needed investment in collection and recycling.
