Members and Network

EXTR:ACT’s founding members comprise two liquid packaging board producers and three beverage carton converters representing roughly 90% of the European beverage carton market. Our existing members are committed to collectively taking actions to scale up the recycling of their packaging to ensure a sustainable approach and helping to drive the circular economy in Europe.

Change can be further accelerated through collaboration with the entire paper-based multi-material industry. By working together, we can ensure recycling takes place at scale so that we can contribute to a truly circular economy. We welcome enquiries about our work from other companies producing fibre-based multi-material packaging. If you would like to know more about joining EXTR:ACT please click here.
