Legislative actions & controls to stop illegal free-riding through online-platforms

With the continued growth in purchases through online marketplaces, it is so important that companies operating in this way fulfill their environmental obligations; with financial contributions to waste management.  All too often, they do not and the scale of their non-compliance has reached disturbing proportions.

Over the last 2 years EU workshops and studies have been addressing the extent of the problem.  These have have helped  raise awareness of the scale and impact of non-compliant online sales on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) systems.

The EucoLight conference will showcase the work now being undertaken by Member States.  It will help create a road map for driving compliance within online marketplaces.

Please come and join us to debate and get a clear picture of the latest multi-level developments. Attending will be:

  • Representatives of the EU institutions
  • National law makers and enforcement agencies
  • Actors in the Producer Responsibility chain
  • Specialised analysts
  • Online operators

To receive an invitation, please register your interest ,you will then be sent more details as soon as available.
