Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is an evaluation criterion that assesses a company’s ability to effectively manage its environmental and social impacts. ESG has gained increased spotlight in recent years. At the same time, businesses are facing significant increased cost, complexity and reporting burdens connected with packaging. Our Evelyn Partners experts are hosting a timely new webinar series focused on ESG. In this series, we will discuss the latest packaging tax and regulatory requirements and what they mean for you, the increasing issues surrounding Greenwashing – new developments, including recent enforcement actions, and how to avoid falling foul of the rapidly evolving international laws and regulations in this space and the journey to delivering social impact.
In the first recording of the series, our experts will be joined by Ecosurety, the first compliance scheme to be certified as a B Corporation, to provide an overview of the new extended producer responsibility (EPR) regime.
During the recording, we will:
-Provide the latest update on plastic packaging tax, EPR and how you can prepare
-Explore the data and reporting requirements you need to consider
-Share our experience of ways to navigate the challenges
