What do we do?

Networking platform
ECMA offers several platforms to share experiences and information and organises the annual ECMA Congress, seminars and bi-monthly webinars around specific ‘hot issues’. The ECMA Congress is the ultimate networking event for the folding carton industry where converters and industry suppliers meet to share the latest trends and developments within the folding carton industry supply chain.

Government affairs
ECMA promotes the carton industry at the European Commission and across National Governments, actively participating in consultations and workshops that may concern carton products and the fibre packaging sector. Information concerning future planned legislative and regulatory changes is circulated amongst members

Information exchange and benchmarking
ECMA offers special industry platforms and expertise networks for both SME and multinational companies with a special focus on pharmaceutical packaging producers, tobacco packaging producers, food safety, communications and sustainability experts.

B2B opportunities
ECMA offers the best business-to-business opportunities for suppliers to the folding carton industry. Suppliers are actively involved within ECMA and have many opportunities to meet directly the decision makers from converter members.

Industry Guidelines
ECMA has produced Industry Guidelines like the ECMA Food Safety GMP 2.0 with the ECMA Compliance Seal, the ECMA Code and the Braille standard.
