Abstract

The new trajectories established by Agenda 2030 for the achievement of the sustainability of individual and collective well-being impose to look at the socio-economic and environmental repercussions deriving from the use of plastics in the agri-food sector. Starting from an examination of this use and considering the strategies put in place by the European Union, this paper aims to assess whether, from a sustainability point of view, it must now be considered a threat to be avoided or an opportunity to be seized for an agri-food sustainability oriented. More specifically, the paper looks at the New Plastics Economy, a project that should make the economic system more compatible with the needs of the ecosystem and that applies the principles of the circular economy, to solicit local policy makers to reflect on the development strategies able to make companies and consumers more responsible in relation to the use of plastics
