According to the report, the new packaging products will be introduced to the market in 2021. 

SABIC's certified renewable polymers, polypropylene and polyethylene materials are reportedly derived from animal-free and palm oil-free "second-generation" renewable feedstock.

Beiersdorf has set out targets to achieve by 2025 that include reducing the use of fossil-based virgin plastic by 50% within the next five years, increasing the share of recycled material for plastic packaging to 30% and making 100% of all product packaging either reusable, refillable or recyclable.
