AIP webinar on single use plastic bans across Australia and New Zealand

The webinar will be held on the 6th of September, and brought to you by the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) and National Retail Association (NRA).

This webinar will provide a comprehensive update across all single use plastic bans in Australia and New Zealand.

With extensive state-based plastic bans coming into effect this year and over the next 3 years, it is important for businesses to stay up-to-date with developments.

Upcoming state-based bans include a diverse range of items and packaging, such as produce bags, coffee cups & their lids, takeaway food containers & their lids/windows, expanded plastic (not just EPS), and many other items.

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.

Ebony Johnson from the National Retail Association will be providing a dedicated webinar for AIP members and affiliates to provide a comprehensive update across all current and upcoming single-use plastic bans.

Ebony represents industry on multiple taskforces and committees, as well as managing the NRA’s business engagement programs. The NRA team are working with governments across Australia and New Zealand to deliver engagement and education programs to impacted stakeholders.

Last year alone, they 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 and its implications for business.
