Through its network of 23 national associations and an array of recycling initiatives, EUMEPS is committed to promoting the use of EPS as a sustainable and efficient choice for insulation and packaging solutions. This commitment is aligned with Europe’s overarching goal of achieving key environmental objectives, placing EPS at the forefront of efforts to foster a climate-neutral and resource-efficient tomorrow.
