Packaging waste Netherlands 2023-2027 is theme in the Live Online NVC Cafe

If you would like to discuss trending topics in packaging, then you are welcome to join us in the Live Online NVC Café. The NVC Café is usually open twice a month from 3-4 PM CET. There are no costs involved.

On 8 July 2022 the theme is Packaging waste Netherlands 2023-2027

Thirty-one years after the first “Packaging Covenant” (1991), the Netherlands is preparing for another new phase in the collection and processing of packaging waste. In the period 2013-2022, the Foundation (Stichting) Afvalfonds Verpakkingen (SAFV) was given a central role. The SAFV sets the rates and is also entitled to collect the levy from the entire Dutch business community, based on a General Binding Declaration (Algemeen Verbindend Verklaring AVV) approved by the parliament. In principle, the SAFV aims for a new five-year period (2023-2027) in combination with a renewed AVV.
In the café on Friday 8 July 2022, we will jointly analyse the environmental results and costs over the past ten years and try to indicate how we should proceed in the next five years. We will also discuss the results of our exploratory meeting with the Ministry, which will take place on 6 July 2022. All this is in preparation for the decision-making process in the autumn of 2022.
You can register here (no costs involved).

The café is accessible worldwide (you can participate from any place you wish) and offers sufficient interaction between the visitors and the NVC employees.

In the NVC Café you will also learn more about NVC and how we help to keep the NVC members up-to-date with our information services, courses, workshops and trainings and the NVC-activities.
