      A transparent supply chain is one of the keys to avoiding problematic chemical substances in your products.  We will postulate it is the only way forward to pave the way for a circular economy for packaging materials. In the first instnce it is about trust, declarations and information on the chemical content of the products from your suppliers and from their suppliers. It is also about closing the circle of the material flow in the supply chain.

      In this webinar we present the experience from a printing company which has been through the process of substitution of problematic substances in their entire product portfolio. Furthermore, we introduce a new guidance and tools supporting companies towards a circular economy.
