Webinar: Overview of the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for packaging consultation

Date 22 April 2021

WEBINAR  -1.30-3PM

Producer Responsibility for packaging.

The evidence generated from the first consultation for packaging EPR in 2019 have informed this second round, the result of which will have an unprecedented impact on packaging producer responsibility beyond 2021.

The proposals represent radical reform to the way in which producers are held accountable for the packaging they create and sell – for example the new Extended Producer Responsibility measures are set to include modulated fees and full net cost recovery, dramatically increasing costs for producers.

The consultation is due to close on 4 June 2021. It is open to responses from anyone, not just technical experts, and it is crucial there is a wide range of respondents with an equal representation of views to achieve the best regulatory outcome.

This webinar, run by Ecosurety head of innovation and policy Robbie Staniforth, will provide an overview of what you need to know about the key objectives and proposals outlined in the consultation, with an opportunity to ask questions at the end.

Who is it for?

This webinar will be essential viewing for all producers placing packaging on the market, even those under the threshold of existing packaging producer responsibility.
