PARIS — Cosmetics packaging manufacturers will continue whittling down the amount of plastics they use throughout 2019, as brands, customers and legislation push for a new, more ecological normal. A single-use plastics directive was adopted at the European Union level by the European Parliament and Council in June, for instance. The directive “promotes circular approaches that give priority to sustainable and nontoxic reusable products and reuse systems rather than to single-use products, aiming first and foremost to reduce the quantity of waste generated.” Member states have until July 3, 2021, to comply with most of the directive’s previsions. “With this new directive, brands and consumers will have to change their habits, and on our side right now, we are studying new material alternatives to plastic and refillable options, as well as different ways to keep your packaging for more than one use,” said Denis Maurin, executive vice president of sales and innovation at HCT Group.

With high real estate rentals, and malls just beginning to grow throughout the country, it was a challenging situation for retailers, which were eager to expand into one of the fastest growing markets in the world. On Wednesday, the Indian government unveiled a relaxation of those rules, bringing down the 30 percent sourcing requirement to 10 percent, provided the firms export 20 percent of their products to other countries. “The changes in the foreign direct investment (FDI) policy will result in making India a more attractive FDI destination, leading to benefits of increased investments, employment and growth,” Piyush Goyal, the commerce minister, told a media briefing. “Online sales will lead to the creation of jobs in logistics, digital payments, customer care, training and product skilling.” TheRead More...
