The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) and National Retail Association (NRA) have collaborated to host a webinar, which aims to provide a comprehensive update across all single use plastic bans in Australia and New Zealand.
The webinar will be held on 6 September from 10am to 11am AEST and is being held as extensive state-based plastic bans are coming into effect this year and over the next three years, identifying the importance for businesses to stay up-to-date with developments.
Ebony Johnson from the National Retail Association will be running the webinar for AIP members and affiliates.
Johnson represents industry on multiple taskforces and committees, as well as managing the NRA’s business engagement programs.
The NRA team is working with governments across A/NZ to deliver engagement and education programs to impacted stakeholders.
Last year alone, it engaged over 100,000 retailers, suppliers and community organisations on single-use plastic bans and related sustainability programs. The NRA also manages the National Plastics Ban hotline, visits hundreds of stores every day, and has detailed technical and commercial understanding of the ban and its implications for businesses.
“Upcoming state-based bans include a diverse range of items and packaging, such as produce bags, coffee cups and their lids, takeaway food containers and their lids/windows, expanded plastic (not just EPS), and many other items,” AIP said.
“As every plastic ban varies in definitions, rules and items in scope, this session will help members and industry colleagues across Australia and New Zealand to receive a timely update in one concise session.”
