Another step towards a plastic-free future
A lot has been going on lately in the area of plastic regulations. Plastic waste is a scourge and the lack of effective solutions to this issue forces us to take immediate actions to limit its use.
One of the proposed measures is the Plastic Packaging Tax introduced in the UK on 1st April 2022. The objective of the PPT is the introduction of a circular plastic economy into the production and manufacture of daily-use products. The main principle is to replace the newly created plastic with its recycled equivalent.
What are the main conclusions and observations one year after the introduction of PPT?
First of all, due to PPT, manufacturers are obligated to collect more data on packaging used during production. Secondly, the first steps towards a re-use of plastic materials have already been taken by some companies.
The fact is that a complete transition from a standard to a circular economy will require many new approaches and changes in business models, as well as a lot of time. However, as in any transformation, the most important thing is to take the first step.
For those seeking further information, the Annel team prepared a brochure that will guide you through the PPT regulation.
