National Policy for Packaging Waste Management

The study has been conducted for the Ministry of Environmental Protection.

The aim of this research was to examine policy alternatives for sustainable management of packaging waste in Israel. The work includes the definition of packaging types, weight estimation of packaging waste produced in Israel, a survey of packaging waste treatment methods in Europe and around the world, examination of legislation alternatives and a recommendation on the preferred regulation scheme for the state of Israel.

In order to set the basis for the law, we worked in close cooperation with all stake-holders like relevant Ministries (Finance, Interior, Industry, Trade and Labor), manufacturers association, the federation of Israeli Chamber of Commerce, Israel Antitrust Authority, local authorities, NGO's etc.

The suggested bill, which has been drafted as a result of this research, is awaiting final authorization in the Knesset, after passing first reading and the Economic Affairs committee.
