Producer responsibility for packaging is a legal obligation for businesses. It applies to companies that pack products in Finland or import packed products for the Finnish market or sell their products to Finland through distance sales and have a turnover of at least one million euros. A company is also responsible for its packaging if the packing or logistics has been outsourced to another company.
The easiest and most convenient way to handle a company’s obligations of producer responsibility is to sign a contract with producer organisations administered by RINKI Ltd. A company only needs to sign one contract. Rinki and the producer organisations arrange reception, collection and recycling of carton, glass, metal, plastic and wooden packaging on behalf of companies so that the requirements of the legislation are met.
