Invitation to EucoLight conference: Actions to stop illegal free-riding through online-platforms
EucoLight are to host a conference in Brussels the afternoon of 6 November to discuss:
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.
