Tuesday, 27 June 2023 | Plastic packaging taxes and regulations in Europe – planning for what’s next (2:30 pm CEST)

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) schemes are evolving across Europe. Some of the developments include the UK’s amended EPR legislation requiring producers to provide packaging data as of March this year and a new EPR system will be in force in Hungary from 1 July 2023.  With EPR, producers are required to take responsibility for the environmental impact of packaging they supply through EPR fees to cover collection and disposal of packaging once it becomes waste. 

This snapshot of activity is taking place alongside a busy plastic packaging taxes landscape, both implemented and planned across Europe. With the pace of change, keeping track of upcoming developments is key.

Join this special 60-minutes webcast to hear more about overall picture in Europe including the latest legislative developments in the UK and Hungary and how to address potential impacts, synergies and new compliance requirements.  In addition, experiences and practices will be shared following the implementation of plastic packaging taxes in Spain and the UK. 

Join us for a discussion on:

  • Scene-setting: packaging regulations landscape in Europe 

  • Legislation overview: EPR in the UK and Hungary

  • Levering lessons learnt: UK and Spain plastic packaging taxes

  • Global outlook on future developments

  • Frequently asked questions and emerging leading practices

Speakers will include EY professionals from across Europe with a focus on plastic packaging taxes and regulations.

If the timing doesn’t work for you, please register and you’ll receive the replay for you to view at your own convenience.

We look forward to seeing you there!
