The Berlin Senate Department for the Environment, Urban Mobility, Consumer Protection and Climate Action (SenUMVK) and Stiftung Initiative Mehrweg are organising an online expert dialogue on "Reusable Transport Packaging" on 27 February 2023 to discuss potentials, challenges and elements for the expansion of reusable transport packaging together with experts from trade, the logistics industry, civil society and politics. Good examples from practice will be presented that show how reusable systems for transport can be developed and expanded. In addition, there will be an exchange on political framework conditions necessary to strengthen reusable transport packaging.
A detailed agenda can be found here.
Please register by 22 February 2023 via our registration form! (The event will be held in German.)
For the transport of goods from the factory or a warehouse to retailers or wholesalers, disposable packaging is the norm, which becomes waste after one single use. Reusable systems provide an alternative to this waste of resources. While reusable transport packaging is already quite widespread for some product groups, e.g., fruits and vegetables, the overall potential of reusable transport packaging is far from being exhausted.
The event takes place within the framework of the Berlin Re-Use Initiative.
