Pressure is mounting on online sellers to comply with their environmental obligations – Consorzio ERP Italia is providing a wide range of support

6 September 2021

Pressure is mounting on online sellers to comply with their environmental obligations.

Both national authorities and the European Commission have identified sales via online channels as a growing area where companies are not complying with their EU-wide extended producer responsibilities for WEEE, batteries and packaging.

In June, Consorzio ERP Italia signed an agreement with Netcomm, the Italian Digital Commerce Consortium. As part of this collaboration, Netcomm members can contact Consorzio ERP Italia for support in managing their environmental compliance in Italy and Europe.

Consorzio ERP Italia will also provide operational support in dealing with requirements to collect waste electronics and batteries. The services offered include the management of one-to-one WEEE takeback and the analysis of legal obligations.

Furthermore, Consorzio ERP Italia is offering webinars to support online sellers.

On 18th June, the company organised a free webinar for Netcomm members to explain the principle of extended producer responsibility – and how it is mandated by legislation in both Italy and Europe, including the Circular Economy Package.

On 13th October at 2:30 pm CET, Consorzio ERP Italia will host another webinar, “Management of one-to-one WEEE takeback: how European and local legislation has evolved since the pandemic.”

This webinar is about WEEE requirements and obligations – with a focus on one-to-one obligations for online sellers. It will give an overview of the differences and similarities between national regulations – and present scalable, multi-country solutions for complying with the regulations.

Landbell Group partner, Consorzio ERP Italia is one of the main non-profit producer compliance schemes for WEEE and batteries in Italy.
