VANA collaborates widely with relevant players throughout the value chain to create the best conditions so that you can meet your obligations under the producer responsibility - both in Denmark and internationally. At VANA, we handle the actual framework and operation of the producer responsibility in Denmark, and our partnerships give you the opportunity to choose a solution that fits in with your business structure and systems, if you need help with e.g. data management or international compliance.

Data handling and international compliance

The partnerships entered into between VANA and the respective players are not financially binding. The collaborations you may wish to enter into with an player for the purpose of handling and declaring your obligations in addition to VANA's services are thus an agreement exclusively between your company and the chosen player.

VANA offers direct integration to our member portal for reporting to the Danish market through our collaboration partners. Through the partnerships, VANA validates, among others, the automated environmental calculation for the Danish market, which several of our partners offer. Through the partnerships, we furthermore ensure mutual knowledge sharing and sparring for the benefit of our members.

GS1 Denmark offers a free starter kit, so you can get started mapping your packaging quantities and get ready for reporting in 2024. The starter kit includes a packaging calculation tool that makes it easy to get an overview of and to structure your packaging data. The tool can also help you obtain data from suppliers. Your data can subsequently be transferred to the GS1Trade Packaging system, which will be launched in summer 2024.

GS1 Denmark is part of the standardisation organisation GS1, which has offices in 116 countries and 50 years of experience in standardising data. Companies that already use GS1's product data exchange service may profit from transferring existing packaging data to GS1Trade Packaging.
