September 2022
 
Back to school!
 
We hope your summer break was sustainable, and your batteries are recharged – or, at least, properly recycled!

Just like the children going back to school, we’re rolling up our sleeves again to report on the most recent developments in EPR and regulatory compliance.

This month starts with geography. First topic: North America. We’re working hard to expand our support and services to producers and legislators, and many of this month’s articles focus on our work in the region.

The new school year is also a time for new tasks and goals. Our homework for this year is to keep you updated on how EPR can make a positive environmental and social impact… stay tuned for more information!

If it’s September, then that means the Green Alley Award applications open next week. We’re already looking forward to our annual 'school trip' to Berlin. Hopefully, see you there in April 2023.

If you want to be well prepared for the new school year, please put September’s COMPASS on your required reading list!

Thank you for reading...
