Introduction of the Rinki trademark in 2018 – packaging data reporting 28 February 2018

Dear Rinki customer,

In this bulletin we will tell you about the introduction of the Rinki trademark as well as about submitting packaging data for this year.

The Rinki trademark will be introduced in marketing communications in 2018

We are happy to inform you that the Rinki trademark can be used in marketing communications from the beginning of 2018. Displaying the Rinki trademark tells your customers and partners that your company is responsible and bears producer responsibility for packaging.

Using the Rinki trademark in marketing communications means that you can use it on your own website, on printed and electronic materials as well as in your advertising and marketing materials. There are two versions of the trademark: the simple Rinki trademark and the “RINKI mukana pakkauskierrätyksessä” trademark, the elements of which are always used together.

You can download the Rinki trademark from the beginning of 2018 from our Extranet service extranet.rinkiin.fi. Please notify our customer service team when you start using the Rinki trademark by email to info@rinkiin.fi.

Please note that there are restrictions on the use of the Rinki trademark. Unfortunately, it cannot be used on your company’s products or packaging.

Companies that have a contract administered by Rinki concerning the transfer of producer responsibility for packaging to producer organisations have the right to use the Rinki trademark in their marketing communications. The rules for using the Rinki trademark will come into force on 1 January 2018. You can find the rules at Rinkiin.fi/for-firms.

We would like to see companies using the Rinki trademark actively in their marketing communications!

Reporting packaging data by 28 February 2018 – Rinki will cease to post paper forms

The deadline for reporting packaging data is approaching. In the future, we will remind you of the packaging data reports by email only, and we will no longer send reporting forms by post. The deadline for submitting the packaging data for 2017 is 28 February 2018.

The easiest way to submit the report is to send it through our Extranet service at extranet.rinkiin.fi. Due to upgrades, the extranet will be out of service for the rest of 2017. We will send Extranet usernames at the end of 2017 to those companies whose customer IDs have changed due to changes to their contracts.

Electronic communication and reporting of the packaging data will make it easier and quicker for you to contact Rinki. In order to ensure the smooth running of the service, it is important that all your contact details are up-to-date. Please notify our customer service team of any changes: info@rinkiin.fi, tel. 09 6162 3500.

We would be happy to provide you with any further information you may require.

Best regards,
