Plastic Thinking Workshop to coincide with World Environment Day
Wed 5th June @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm£45.00 – £90.00
Join us and Dawn Pope of SEL Safe Environment Ltd on the IEMA accredited Plastic Thinking Workshop.
The workshop coincides with “One Plastic Free Day” on 5th June 2019.
Compliance on UK “Plastic” is due to change, Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations are more than 20 years old, the EU Circular Economy requirements, growing public pressure and the realisation that the current system does not cover the costs of plastic waste management have created the need to review existing requirements – public Consultation is ongoing until May 2019.
This workshop will benefit you and your business by:
• Understanding the plastic problem
• Developing the skills to prioritise the impacts of plastic
• Applying sound environmental management principles to the use of plastic throughout your organisation.
• Learning about some of the proposed changes to existing compliance requirements, for example mandatory labelling, incentives to encourage the design and use of packaging that can be recycled, measures to increase compliance monitoring and enforcement, this surveillance may also include packaging waste that is exported.
