Optimise your producer responsibilities

Having an accurate and reliable packaging portfolio dataset is critical. It will enable you to prepare for increased data reporting requirements and identify where your liabilities lie for the Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT), Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and the Deposit Return Schemes (DRS). Not only that - with the right data in place you can strategically focus efforts on reducing those costs and your environmental impacts with ease.

We're here to help you get there in four steps:

1. Prepare your business

Before working on your packaging data we can help you understand what needs to be taken into consideration – including PPT, EPR, DRS and any voluntary drivers such as a plastic reduction commitment. Our team can then assess your existing data to help you quickly get prepared. We can:

  • Model your costs and the likely impacts on your business
  • Check your data coverage to discover what needs to be improved
  • Plan your data collection processes, including for any complex supply chains

Our experienced team will support you with both internal and supplier data collection. We know this is more often easier said than done and that the quality of your database will only ever be as good as the data going in. We can:

  • Optimise your data collection, methodology and accuracy
  • Validate that your data is accurate and complete to fully assess your liabilities
  • Enable confidence in all your data submissions
  • Centralise the data required to get a holistic view of your packaging environmental impact

3. Comply with your obligations

Once you have accurate data flowing in, you need to be sure that it is used to efficiently comply with any obligations you have, accurately and on time. We will:

  • Submit your data to environmental regulators
  • Calculate your obligations
  • Help you fulfil your EPR obligations via PRN purchasing

4. Improve your packaging portfolio

Data visualisations of your current and estimated future costs will drive strategic decision-making, taking the pain out of deciding how to optimise your product and packaging portfolio to reduce your PPT, EPR, DRS and environmental impacts. It will also define strategies to meet your recyclability goals. We can help you to:

  • Understand existing compliance cost drivers
  • Fully engage with your suppliers, internal teams and your board
  • Reduce the environmental impact of your products and their EPR costs
  • Easily track and report on the impact of your actions
