On 1 April 2022, the UK government will implement a new plastic packaging tax (PPT) to combat the use of single-use plastic and encourage greater use of recycled plastics.

Please listen to this webinar if you are interested in understanding how the plastic packaging tax will work, who will be affected and the proactive steps that industry leaders must take.
