    View Speakers / Event

    A recording of the webinar is available for download.

    From April 2022, the UK government is proposing to introduce a new tax on plastic packaging manufactured in, or imported into, the UK and containing less than 30% recycled plastic. Currently, the detailed policy design for the plastics tax is under consultation until 20 May 2020. Join Anita Lloyd and Caroline Almond for the first session in our UK ESH Webinar Series, as they discuss some of the key points of the proposed new tax regime and explain what will and will not fall within its scope.

    An overview and invitation for each of the upcoming sessions in our series will be shared in coming days and weeks.
