we’re a not-for-profit scheme existing solely for the benefit of our members
A Powerful partnership
The potential for a sector-specific scheme was originally identified by BBPA members as a way of regaining control of packaging waste within the sector, rather than simply paying out each year. Our scheme is true to the spirit of the original Producer. Responsibility regulations in which those of us who are responsible for introducing and using packaging within the supply chain, take responsibility for it throughout its lifecycle.
A strong industry voice
With its unique member relationship, Sustain is set to be a key contributor to industry-led reaction to any significant changes to the EU (and subsequent UK) producer responsibility mechanisms. With current targets only set for the next 3 years, Sustain are already involved, through the BBPA on identifying next steps and assessing the impact of recent draft legislative proposals on the industry.
Doing the right thing together
As well as packaging compliance issues, we are also actively looking for additional benefits from this innovative way of working in order to develop other related initiatives for the benefit of our members and our sector.
