AFGC WEBINAR | Packaging and Plastics

3 June 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On Wednesday, 3 June, the AFGC is hosting a webinar to provide full members with an update on current community expectations and government activity in relation to packaging, recycling and plastics.

With increasing community and government focus on packaging from TV documentaries, the National Plastics Summit in March, the Product Stewardship Act Review and the NSW Government currently considering the implementation of extended producer responsibility schemes and mandating 30% recycled content on all plastic packaging, we recommend all members attend to be fully informed on this topic, which has the potential to impact all brand owners.

The AFGC will provide members with an overview of international and domestic government(s) focus on potential packaging regulations.

DATE:            Wednesday, 3 June 2020
TIME:             3.00 – 4.00pm AEST
