Which professional profile would be best suited to handle Ecoembes' plans contact functions?

We need a point of contact at your firm, so we can speak with them since, over the plans five years of validity, your business must tell Ecoembes about the waste prevention strategies used in your packaging.

As technical profiles (packaging, quality, environment, R&D&i, etc.) are more relevant for the combined work to be carried out over the next few years, we recommend that your company's contact person have one of these profiles.
