Afera's Sustainability Mission

SDG icons

As a not-for-profit trade organisation with over 60 years’ experience, Afera supports the European adhesive tape value chain in their sustainability journey and facilitates the promotion of adhesive tapes as sustainable solutions by:

  • Raising awareness regarding the role of tapes as sustainable solutions by reducing weight, optimizing resource use and improving recyclability, repairability and reusability of the products incorporating them 
  • Providing a platform for sharing technical knowledge, standardised life cycle analyses, relevant political and legal information, and support in government and NGO relations
  • Advocating for policy development on sustainability and other environmental, social, regulatory and technical issues in the common interest of the European adhesive tape industry 

Through these activities, Afera and its members contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 4, 9, 12 and 16.
