The second segment of EPR (Extended Producers Responsibility) conference will focus on the brand owner’s perspectives on plastic recycling, sustainability, and circular economy. Through this conference, the organizers aim to bring the brand owners on board along with the plastic recyclers, waste management companies, and companies who conduct EPR compliance. The conference will discuss strategies, action plans, and management of waste out of plastic.

The physical conference will take place at Aloft New Delhi Aerocity on 8 October 2021 while the virtual event will be held on townhall. 125+ physical delegates and 150+ virtual delegates are expected to attend the event.

Recycling is one of the most important actions available to reduce the impacts of plastic on the environment. It provides opportunities to reduce oil usage, carbon dioxide emissions, and the quantities of waste requiring disposal.

ITS EPR will continue to provide a platform where all brand owners and plastic recyclers can meet and bring the solutions with regards to plastic waste management.

Key topics and discussions include the policy and legal requirements of EPR Implementation; innovations and technology solutions in EPR; microplastic wasteland owner’s strategies solutions; MLP packaging and recyclability with sustainability bond strategies, compliance, and technologies; EPR Landscapes – role/importance of EPR stakeholders; opportunities and challenges of the new EPR schemes; OPET Recyclability and aspects of KPR; and plate credits and KPR.

The Shakti Plastic Industries is the Lead sponsor for the event while Verra and Raivis are Gold sponsors.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
