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 help:

  • Understand how EPR impacts you
  • Model your regulatory costs
  • Check your data coverage & accuracy
  • Plan your data collection process
