License your packaging
You can now license your packaging online with just a single click. Once this step has been completed, you’ll be sent confirmation that your packaging (which must be licensed with a system) is now part of a licensing system in accordance with the German Packaging Act. What’s more, you’ll also receive a personalised carbon certificate that shows your individual contribution towards curbing climate change (as CO2 equivalents).
Packaging is a key part of any business, whether it be needed for transporting or storing products. But with it comes a responsibility for the environment. Packaging must be recycled or disposed of properly to prevent it having a negative impact on the environment. To make sure this happens, companies must meet a number of specific obligations that have been set out in the German Packaging Act [VerpackG].
All packaging that ends up at private end consumers must be licensed. Companies that place packaging onto the market are required by law to license this packaging. The German Packaging Act stipulates that these companies must participate in a Dual System and license their packaging. This step ensures that this packaging is collected and recycled properly. By taking part in this licensing scheme, you – as a company – are financing the collection and recycling of your packaging.
Besides being a legal obligation, licensing packaging materials is also important for the environment. Recycling the packaging helps to conserve huge volumes of natural resources. This licensing scheme can also have a financial impact on businesses. Companies that fail to license their packaging may be issued heavy fines and penalties.
Licensing packaging materials certainly has its benefits as well. Companies that license their packaging can present themselves as a green and responsible business. You can, for example, add your certificate of participation and/or your carbon certificate to your company documents and website. This not only helps further improve your company’s image but also helps to bolster your reputation with your customers and business partners.
So who is actually responsible for making sure that packaging is licensed in accordance with the rules and regulations? First and foremost, it is the manufacturers of this packaging. They must ensure that their packaging is licensed in accordance with the German Packaging Act and with a Dual System. However, it’s not just manufacturers that have obligations. Importers and retailers handling packed goods also have a responsibility to make sure that the packaging of their products is licensed and registered with a Dual System.
