Webinar: EU Green Deal and Member State Environmental Requirements and Initiatives (Part 1 of 2)Oct. 17, 2022, 12 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. ET
Major regulations affecting cosmetic products and their packaging are changing drastically at the EU level and within the EU member states. Targeting further environmental protection, the EU Commission is proposing changes to formulations, packaging, claims and labeling. Making matters even more complex, member state countries such as France, Spain and Italy have launched their own environmental laws and regulations.
Join PCPC for the first of a two-part webinar series on the EU Green Deal and Member State Environmental Requirements and Initiatives for a comprehensive understanding of the new regulatory landscape. Specifically, the webinar will provide:
- An introduction to the EU Green Deal
- An overview of the green claims regulatory landscape at the EU level with additional aspects from key member states
- A deeper dive into member states’ environmental and recyclability labelling
Get answers! PCPC’s Global Strategies team will field questions during the webinar. Email questions you would like addressed in advance of the webinar.
