The scheme aims to help members improve and maintain their waste management and recycling

The ‘Display & POS 2 Recycling Scheme’ will aim to help companies improve and maintain their waste management and recycling.

Members that achieve certification or take part in the scheme will be able use the logo on communications related to their waste management and also share the pledge and targets to promote a level environmental and sustainability level. 

This pledge includes key points such as to ensure all waste produced has been included into the scheme to confirm accountability, implement a ‘Waste Hierarchy’ and maintain records of waste collections and treatment routes used.

Other parts of the pledge are to introduce and utilise media that is more widely recycled where possible, promote environmental sustainability through the supply chain and encourage clients to make environmentally preferable choices.

This scheme is here to help companies improve and maintain their waste management and recycling

In terms of core targets for the scheme, Prismm Environmental will prepare an initial report upon acceptance into membership that outlines media usage and waste output. This will be reviewed each year and any changes that are achieved analysed and included in a summary.

Prismm Environmental will also record all recycling, recovery and landfill volumes and issued to the site monthly, while the BPIF Visual Display and POS Steering Group will receive annual recycling, recovery and landfill volumes for each member site.

“This scheme is here to help companies improve and maintain their waste management and recycling,” the BPIF says. 

“It provides a baseline and scope on requirements, support and an ongoing direction to improve environmental sustainability with the visual display and POS sectors, adhering to the following pledge and targets.”
