Members' Webinar 'The Chinese Waste Import Ban – What it Means for Retailers, Brands and Importers'

02-03-2018
On 2 March from 10:00 – 11:00 (CET), amfori will hold its next member’s webinar ‘The Chinese Waste Import Ban – What it Means for Retailers, Brands and Importers’. 
 
Starting in 2018, China took the decision to stop all imports of 24 types of waste from around the world, this includes nearly 9 million tonnes of plastics. Considering that around half of the EU’s plastic waste is exported, mainly to China, it is against this backdrop that the European Commission presented its Strategy on Plastics in the Circular Economy. This strategy identifies key challenges associated with plastics, including how to make packaging more recyclable and increase plastics recycling in the EU.
 
This webinar will examine:
  • The recent decision of the Chinese government to ban imports of 24 types of waste
  • Insight into the EU strategy on plastics in the circular economy 
  • The impact on business and recommended actions to take
