Who we are

WHO WE ARE

Partners for the best of packaging

The French Packaging Council (CNE), a non-profit organization founded in 1997, is a moral authority and a forum for dialogue between the various players of the packaging industry: packaging materials manufacturers, packaging manufacturers (converters), producers of consumer goods, distributors, approved collection and recovery systems and operators, local authorities as well as consumer and environmental organizations.
 

The mission of the CNE is to develop and disseminate better practices in designing, using and marketing products packaging. As it is historically active in the development of a packaging waste prevention policy, the CNE more generally wishes to be a spearhead in the development of a responsible policy relative to the eco-design of products packaging.

 

This results in different actions:

  • Developing and disseminating good practices in designing, production, retail and usage of products packaging.
  • Formulating positions and advice to the different stakeholders.
  • Being proactive in developing a product packaging eco-design policy.
  • Developing and promoting prevention and source reduction.
  • Facilitate exchanges between the different stakeholders.

Dialogue

  • Organizing dialogue between the concerned partners in order to improve the packaging;
  • Giving public authorities opinions and recommendations, in particular on legislative and regulatory projects concerning the design and manufacture of packaging at national and community level.

 

Education

  • Writing documents and spreading information easily available to general public, in order to develop good practices in the field of packaging;
  • Launching information and awareness initiatives aiming at encouraging the prevention and reduction of the overall environmental impact of packaging.

 

Pragmatism

  • Examining questions of public interest and observations on packaging expressed by users and consumer organizations whose suggestions will have been collected by associations without replacing the companies’ relevant departments.

 

Transparency and Confidentiality

  • Giving free speech to participants during workshops while keeping conversations confidential.
