David has been involved with packaging waste management policy ever since the European Commission started taking an interest in the environmental impact of packaging in 1974, and his consultancy has expanded its interest in recycling and waste management to cover waste electrical and electronic products, spent batteries and end-of-life vehicles as the EU has developed “producer responsibility” policies for these sectors.
