Data management

Estimating data means you could be over-obligated for your packaging, WEEE or batteries compliance. How accurate are your costs?

Bespoke data dashboards

We can create bespoke data dashboards to help gain insight from your data. For example, we work directly with our members who were required to report on their packaging portfolio as part of their commitment to The UK Plastics Pact. This includes assessment of the recyclability of the various materials used, from tubs and trays through to film and wrappers and the quantities placed on the market.

Using data to drive change

Data analysis can be a complex task for large producers with multiple groups of companies and an extensive supply chain for the raw packaging materials.

By crunching the data and presenting it in bespoke dashboards, we enable members to not only easily submit their data to The UK Plastics Pact, but to use it to drive change within their organisation.

Visualising across the whole organisation and product range where problematic materials are being used, we help producers to efficiently identify where to remove plastic or make it recyclable.

Raw data analysis

When your business has several thousand products, detailed data analysis can make a significant difference. Imagine you have a product line of 25,000 products. Analysis reveals that 90% of your compliance liability rests with the top 200 products, allowing us to focus the bulk of our efforts on that small proportion, saving you an awful lot of time, energy and money. We can work out the best fit approach for your organisation to comply with the producer legislation in the most efficient, and accurate, way possible.

Data collection methodology

More often than not, internal methodologies are stored in the heads of key people, causing untold difficulty for new staff taking over new responsibilities and inhibiting the ability to improve and refine processes. Starting with an audit of your current process, we will produce a detailed data collection methodology working with key personnel, which can be referred to when needed. It also demonstrates that all important transparency to the EA.

Product weighing

To comply with the regulations you will need to know the weight of all your product packaging, a task that draws staff away from their core roles when you least need it. At Ecosurety, we will handle all of this for you, visiting your warehouse and weighing all your packaging as appropriate, storing the data in a useful format ready for your compliance calculations.

Supplier liaison

If you have a complex supply chain and perishable products, sometimes it makes sense to contact suppliers directly to obtain packaging weights rather than weigh them individually. However, it can be a resource intensive, onerous task. Fortunately, we assume all the leg-work for you, contacting suppliers on your behalf and presenting all the information back when the job is complete.

Are your obligations making an impact?

Together with our members, partners and other major brands we are leading the biggest collaborative push to improve on-the-go recycling of packaging waste in the UK, with the landmark #LeedsByExample and #InTheLoop campaigns. Isn't it about time your compliance obligations made a positive impact too?
