Clarity Environmental is hosting a webinar to help obligated producers prepare for the second round of consultations into changes to the UK producer responsibility system for packaging waste.
The free webinar will give an overview of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and the current stage in the government reforms. It will also provide detail on the important areas for businesses to consider when preparing for the potential changes to legislation. Register here.
Hosted by Martin Trigg-Knight, Head of Packaging, and Charlotte Briggs, Policy and Engagement Lead, the webinar will take place on Wednesday 3rd February 2021 at 11am. With an introduction to the current situation and explanation into the proposed options, this is the first in a series of webinars looking specifically at Extended Producer Responsibility.
Martin Trigg-Knight explained the importance of attending and gaining insights ahead of the second round of consultations: “The packaging compliance landscape looks likely to change dramatically over the coming years, with the second round of consultations expected in Spring 2021.
“Whilst we are firmly behind the environmental objectives of the reforms, we are fully aware that some of the sectors that will be most affected by packaging reforms, have been the hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic. It is essential that businesses understand how these changes may impact them, and that they have time to prepare and adapt. We are committed to supporting our packaging compliance members through these changes and ensuring they are in a position to respond to the consultation in an informed manner.”
