As we continue our pledge to go beyond compliance for our packaging compliance members, we are delighted to announce the appointment of specialist consultant, Jimmy Dorrell, to our team.
Sustainability is dominating the packaging industry. Growing consumer awareness, alongside changes in legislation and a need to reduce costs, are all driving manufacturers and retailers to rethink their packaging.
Joining our compliance division, Jimmy will help us to guide our packaging compliance members through this changing, and challenging, climate. With an extensive amount of experience in the sector, specialising in compliance, data and sustainable design, Jimmy will work alongside our packaging compliance team to identify and provide additional support and services to our members.
Our Comply with Clarity packaging compliance scheme has experienced impressive growth in recent years, with a 47 per cent increase in our scheme members for the 2018 compliance year, resulting in an 89 per cent increase of obligated tonnage. This growth is set to increase further in the year ahead and has enabled us to provide additional services to our members.
David Honcoop, Managing Director at Clarity Environmental, said: “Our growing membership has allowed us to reinvest in our packaging compliance scheme and provide even more services to our existing and new members. Jimmy’s background is rooted in sustainability, with many years of experience in the recycling and eco design industry, and we are delighted to have him working with our team, helping our members to get even more from their compliance and ensuring their business is green enough to grow.”
Jimmy Dorell said of his appointment: “”I’m really excited to be working with such a progressive company with big ideas. This is a crucial time for businesses to understand how to become more sustainable and my work with Clarity will help them to become leaders in this area.”
