In a new report, ACR+ member Reloop investigates the climate and waste prevention impacts of recovering and recirculating, through closed-loop recycling, the vast majority of single-use drinks containers sold in the EU. As a results, reaching a 90% separate collection for recycling rate for all drinks packaging (aluminium, plastic and glass), which can be achieved by implementing deposit return systems across all 27 EU Member States, offers multiple benefits across the board. The overall net impact is a reduction of virgin material demand across the EU, which, in turn, results in a significant reduction in carbon emissions. And due to the power of circularity, these impacts will only grow with time.
