Lorax Compliance Limited specialise in helping companies report to Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and Product Stewardship schemes across the world. They offer both reporting software and consultancy services which are designed to simplify the complex global reporting and management requirements.

Their award-winning cloud reporting software covers the traditional EU EPR schemes such as packaging, electronic products, tyres and batteries, as well as newer global regulations such as bottle deposits, textiles, hazardous waste (e.g. oils, pesticides, fertilizer, chemical substance volumes), large non-electronic consumer goods (e.g. mattresses, carpets, plastic products) and medical and health products. Alongside the scheme reporting modules, Lorax Compliance’s software offers data analytics giving companies complete transparency into their worldwide EPR and Stewardship costs. The team at Lorax Compliance have a passion for getting to the details behind EPR and Stewardship reporting. Through the software, the data behind the frequent submissions can be leveraged by clients to give valuable overviews of their products, markets and schemes. They can also create their own company KPIs such as Product to Packaging ratios or material reduction targets.

Reporting to EPR schemes varies dramatically across the world. Providing a software solution and centralizing knowledge to manage the different schemes, timetables, categories and fees can alleviate the pressure companies find themselves under to have specialist resources in each market. In addition, Lorax Compliance support software and non-software customers through regulatory support and legislation analysis and advice. This ranges from offering free legislation update webinars, publishing frequent blogs or engaging in bespoke consultancy projects where clients may have questions around their reporting obligations.
