Dear Mr 
 
  
Thank you for your mail. I would be available for a meeting. In order to 
avoid double bookings, could you please tell me if other visits at DG ENV 
are foreseen?  
I will unfortunately not be joining the EP meeting due to a prior 
commitment, 
  
Best regards,

Subject: SUP directive meeting request 
  
Dear Mr. 
 
  
I am writing to you on behalf of Kotkamills, a Finnish producer 
of truly plastic-free consumer boards and packages.  
There is now an ongoing heated debate on the definition of 
plastics and scope in the Directive on the Reduction of the 
impact of certain plastic products on the environment, the so-
called Single-Use Plastic Directive (SUP), with many opinions for 
and against. Several opponents of the proposal object as they 
claim no industrial-scale alternative exists to the use of plastic in 
food and drinks containers.  
Food and drinks containers already have a plastic-free 
alternative that should be brought into the discussion. It is 
possible to replace plastic coating in materials such as paper 
cups, frozen food and hamburger boxes by easily recyclable, 
environmentally friendly Barrier coating materials without 
relatively big investments. These water-based polymer coatings 
serve the same function as plastic coatings, with the added 

benefit of being truly biodegradable and non-toxic to human or 
animal health or the environment. 
The CEO and representatives of Kotkamills will come to 
Brussels on Tuesday October 9th and 10t
h and we would 
appreciate it very much, if you could find some time in your 
busy schedule to meet with us
 so that we could discuss with 
you about the alternatives for plastic use in products such as 
food and drinks packaging. 
MEP Miapetra Kumpula-Natri is also hosting an event on 
Plastic-free packaging
 Tuesday 9.10. between 11.30-12.30 and 
we would be honoured, if you could join us in the event on the 
Directive.  
The Commission's Plastic Strategy is a long-term vision for a 
Circular Economy and reaching the UN's Sustainable 
Development Goals. Today, Europe has the industry and 
materials to reach these goals and we urge decision-makers to 
take ambitious action to secure a better and ecological Europe. 
If you have any questions, we’re of course more than happy to 
tell more. 
  
Best regards, 
 
Kreab
