“It is positive that the EU Commission emphasises biobased raw materials and products as an important area in the circular economy. However, it should give even greater emphasis to the bioeconomy’s role in the development of a circular economy in Europe.”

At both national and European levels, Ingrid is in charge of product issues in pulp and paper. Nationally, the structure of producer liability for packaging and paper for recycling is a pressing issue. Ingrid is an expert in the EU's new directives on the circular economy and the associated waste management package (with its changes in waste, packaging and landfill directives).
