Producer responsibility for packaging 

As a manufacturer, you are responsible for all your packaging - even after it is empty and sorted by the consumer!

Worth knowing about the producer responsibility

The purpose of the producer responsibility is:

  • to reduce the amount of packaging
  • ensure efficient collection and handling of packaging waste
  • to motivate better and more environmentally sound packaging design - for prevention, reuse and recycling.

VANA manages as Producer Responsibility Organisation (PRO) the financial, practical and legal responsibility on behalf of your company.
