Reconstruction of the cultural & athletic center "PROGRESS" in Attica

Reconstruction of the cultural & athletic center "PROGRESS" in Attica
On the 23rd of July 2018, one of the most tragic pages was written in the history of Greece. A deadly wildfire broke out in Eastern Attica, leaving behind it 102 human lives taken, thousands of acres of forest destroyed, and incalculable material damage. As a company that is driven by the value of Compassion, we were quickly motivated, in an effort to provide moral support to the local community and especially to young people whose lives were violently changed by this massive disaster.

The Europe-wide EU Strategy for Plastics in the Circular Economy, developed to transform the way plastic products are designed, produced, used and recycled, sets a clear goal: all plastic packaging should be recyclable by 2030. To achieve this ambitious vision, the Strategy foresees actions to improve the economics and quality of plastic recycling; to curb plastic waste and littering; to drive investments and innovation; and to harness global action.

The role that flexible packaging producers and converters have to play towards this transformation is indeed more than critical. Moreover, global concern on plastic pollution is constantly rising with consumers increasingly demanding specific actions to be taken by the packaging industry. At Hatzopoulos, we always focus on improving packaging design and on innovating to make our plastic products more environmental-friendly and easier to recycle. In response to the requirements set by the European Commission as well as our customers globally, our dedicated R&D team has developed a series of films that are recycle-ready: X-Cycle.
