Follmann joins the European initiative CEFLEX
In March 2020 the company joined the cooperation initiative CEFLEX, which was founded in 2017 to solve a circular economy for flexible packaging materials.
The collaboration, which consists of various members of the value chain, has set itself the goal of making a positive contribution to the circular economy and the dissolution of a linear economy. By 2025, effective system solutions should be made possible through the cooperation of all project members.
