All obligated companies in the UK must submit details of the packaging waste they handle each year to the Environment Agency. Is your company obligated? See our UK Packaging FAQs.
To date, our staff have assisted more than 70 companies with their packaging waste calculations, including Harrods, John Lewis, Suzuki, Selfridges, and Fortnum & Mason. See a list of our clients. ecoVeritas are used to handling large amounts of data on sales and packaging waste. For example, in 2015 we dealt with data regarding 70 million wine bottles which represented 33,000 tonnes of glass.
We have had particular success in providing a shared solution to a group of major retailers that have formed an association to manage their collective packaging waste obligations. Detailed information is available on the REPRA homepage.
Through the use of specialised, custom-built “PACKMAN” software and an extensive packaging database, we achieve considerable efficiency and conduct top-of-the-range data quality assurance. We can therefore pass the substantial reductions in our costs (typically 40% to 50%) on to our clients.
