Political Framework & Strategy

The development of an innovative industrial sector is influenced by many different factors. Among others, the political framework conditions in which such a sector is built play an important role. Motivations for supporting the bio-based plastics sector (and the bio-based economy in general) vary strongly from region to region.

Furthermore, it is not always easy to communicate the benefits of bio-based and/or biodegradable materials to the market. There is growing awareness in Europe that in addition to new and improved bio-based products, we also need tools to communicate their benefits. Standards provide a reliable basis on which comparisons and claims can be made. Labels constitute a powerful tool to increase customers’ confidence.

But is a label the right way for you? And if so, what do you need to get your product certified? Ask us about the right strategy for you.
