Enviromental Education

Business which introduce products in packaging is required to conduct enviromental education campaigns. This obligation can be implemented directly by Entrepreneur or transfer to packaging recovery organizations.

In case of fulfillment of the obligation by Entrepreneur, it has to spend on public education campaigns or transfer to the account of the National Fund total at least 2% of the net value of packaging placed on the market in the previous calendar year. In addition, the Entrepreneur is required to submit in the annual report information about the amount of funds allocated to public education campaigns (art. 19 of the Law on packaging and packaging waste).

Transfering this obligation can bring significant savings in regards of enviromental fees.
