Many countries have implemented the Green Dot® system, whereby obligated companies use the Green Dot® symbol to prove that they have made a financial contribution towards packaging recycling and have complied with their country’s packaging waste legislation.
Please note that the UK implemented its own PRN system opposed to adopting the Green Dot system.
If you display the Green Dot® symbol on packaging which you export to the countries listed below, you may need to pay a Green Dot® licence fee to each respective country’s compliance scheme.
In addition, if you sell products to other countries or your organisation plans to expand operations outside of the UK, you will need to make sure that you are compliant with environmental legislation overseas, which can be time consuming and complex. Our International Compliance Service will offer you a means to outsource all of the hard work. We have a wealth of compliance knowledge and experience, as well as relevant contacts across the globe, which enables us to assess your requirements and to assist you with meeting your obligations quickly and efficiently.
