7 Working Groups and 6 Taskforces represent the interests of different industry segments while coordinating activities and general objectives of PRE.
Working Groups look for solutions that can help advance recycling and promote the best practices while ultimately seeking to increase quality collection, sorting, recycling and increased use of recycled plastic in Europe.
The involvement of the entire value chain is key in advancing plastics circularity. With that in mind, PRE collaborates with important industry players.
Making Plastics Circular
PRE works toward making plastic circular via a holistic approach.
