Waste Prevention Exchange 2021

The seventh annual Waste Prevention Exchange, brought to you by North London Waste Authority, focuses on the new Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) system.

Taking place online, the expert panel of speakers will look at the system as a whole and explore how we can collectively influence the next phase of consultations on EPR for packaging. In addition, the agenda will consider the opportunities for extending EPR to other materials in order to realise the wider carbon, sustainability and waste prevention benefits that EPR can provide.

Join us to discuss how we can collectively grasp the opportunities of EPR and ultimately influence producers and packagers to reduce the amount of waste they are creating in line with the new EPR system.

This event is free of charge and the virtual platform mimics that of a face-to-face event allowing plenty of networking opportunities with other delegates. View the full programme and register via the button below.
