BRIGHTON, UK , May 30, 2019 (Press Release) -Clarity Environmental has announced 43% growth in its packaging compliance member base, following the published 2019 public register of producers on the National Packaging Waste Database (NPWD).
Now in its tenth year, our ‘Comply with Clarity’ packaging compliance scheme has more than doubled in size since 2017. New members choosing to appoint Clarity to look after their packaging recycling obligations this year include Amazon, Volkswagen Group UK, Mercedes and Tilda; whilst the team is delighted to have also retained 99 per cent of its members from the previous year.
The growth of the compliance scheme in recent years is enabling the business to provide additional support to its members during challenging times for the sector. Packaging compliance scheme manager, Martin Trigg-Knight, said:
"The cost of compliance over the last 12 months has risen, and with so many legislative changes on the horizon, there is an expectation that all businesses obligated under the packaging regulations will continue to see further and significant increases to the costs of their compliance.
“We fully understand the difficulties facing producers and we are committed to supporting our members through the challenges ahead. This growth of our scheme ensures our members can access a range of additional benefits and services that can help to keep the costs of packaging compliance as low as possible. It also allows us to continue increasing our resources, enabling us to retain the dedicated service we provide our members even as we grow.”
Since launching our Beyond Compliance services last year, we are working with our members to identify sustainable solutions for packaging that will enable their business to grow, whilst ensuring their approach to packaging compliance aligns with their corporate social responsibility programme.
We look forward to working with all of our members, both new and existing, throughout the year, supporting and arranging their compliance with the regulations and helping to prepare them for the regulatory changes that lie ahead.
Our Comply with Clarity team has been nominated for a prestigious MRW National Recycling Award in the ‘Team of the Year’ category. This is a huge achievement for our packaging compliance team who work hard to achieve high quality results for our members, as well as for our business, year after year.
