The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), in partnership with the National Retail Association, will be hosting a free webinar on the single-use plastic bans in A/NZ on 6 December.
With six state-based single-use plastic bans in the last year and more coming as early as February, the AIP said is important for businesses to stay up-to-date with developments, especially as some of the future bans extend beyond takeaway food.
National Retail Association policy manager Ebony Johnson will be hosting this dedicated session for AIP members and affiliates to provide a comprehensive update across all current and upcoming single-use plastic bans.
Johnson represents industry on multiple taskforces and committees, as well as managing many of the NRA’s business engagement programs.
Johnson also works with governments across A/NZ to deliver engagement and education programs to impacted stakeholders.
This year alone, the NRA team have engaged over 100,000 retailers, suppliers and community organisations on single-use plastic bans and related sustainability programs. The NRA manage the National Plastics Ban hotline, visit hundreds of stores every day, and have detailed technical and commercial understanding of the ban implications for business.
“As every single-use 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,” the AIP said.
