International Environmental Compliance Services
Extended Producer Responsibility is widely used to reduce waste, guide packaging design and to help drive the Circular Economy. Globally, many hundreds of different EPR programs exist, with new schemes being introduced and reporting requirements continuously changing. So whether this is your first step outside of Canada, or you're already a global company, we can help ensure you meet your EPR compliance obligations wherever you operate.
Greenstreets offers a range of Consulting Services for Canadian companies operating across Europe and North America, managed through 4 Regional Hubs in Canada, UK, Ireland and Germany. Each division has its own dedicated team and is supplemented by Greenstreets' extensive partner network. As well as packaging stewardship, Greenstreets also provide consulting services and advice for other waste streams including Electronic, Battery and Textile waste.
How does this work?
Our international service works in a very similar way to Canada, with GRIPS™ acting as the central data repository. Although reporting rules can vary significantly between countries, packaging specifications, with some exceptions, tend to be common in most regions. As the packaging data is already retained on GRIPS™, once sales volumes are applied, reporting requirements are automatically calculated for the relevant jurisdiction and this information is held securely for future compliance reporting. We can also help identify high cost items, departments or regions as well as assisting with financial reporting or budgeting.
