Webinar: Ecosurety response to the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for packaging consultation

Robbie Staniforth

On the 24 March, UK Governments released the consultation on Extended Producer Responsibility for packaging

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 the official consultation response by Ecosurety, 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.

What will I learn?

This webinar will provide you with the key facts and a good understanding of the consultation response submitted by Ecosurety.
