Comply with Clarity
Clarity hosts free webinars to help businesses stay on top of the latest changes to environmental regulations. With topics focusing on EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility), Plastic Packaging Tax, WEEE Compliance plus many others, our team of environmental experts will guide you through the essential steps to prepare and future-proof your business.
Set to be introduced on 1st April 2022, the Plastic Packaging Tax is designed to encourage the use of more recycled plastic and will apply to plastic packaging produced in, or imported into, the UK and that does not contain at least 30% recycled plastic. The UK government has estimated that it will affect around 20,000 packaging producers and importers.
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) will be in effect from 2023, bringing with it a multitude of legislative change. From then, obligated producers will be financially incentivised to use packaging that is easily recycled and is produced using a high percentage of recycled content. For a business to comply with EPR, stringent reporting will be introduced which will require the gathering of additional data. Failing to prepare for these changes now could see the cost of compliance increase dramatically.
We regularly host live webinars to keep our members up to date with changes in policy and legislation within the resources and waste sector.
We have a catalogue of these webinars recorded, which will allow you to remain up to date on any changes that may be coming, whether it is the Plastic Packaging Tax or Extended Producer Responsibility.
Please note that, because we host these webinars live, developments and progress may have been made in any legislation not yet in law. Therefore, some information given in archive webinars may be updated or have been clarified. As such we recommend you use the most recent videos to inform yourself about a topic and, should you have any questions, contact our expert team who will be able to assist you.
