Recent, current and future developments in EU regulations aimed at increasing sustainability require the adhesive tape supply chain to stay vigilant to remain compliant and to safeguard its future. The Afera Flagship Sustainability Project (AFSP) is an initiative of the adhesive tape value chain to contribute to achieve the goals of the European Green Deal. In this presentation I will give an overview of the most significant recent developments in the regulatory aspects at EU level, and I will update members on the progress of the three workstreams of the AFSP on the development of harmonized calculation methods (Product Carbon Footprint), optimizations in waste management (release liner and tape waste recycling) and advocacy activities (guidelines to members, feedback to European Commission).
