Our partners

Our partners are some of the most respected organisations around. They work with us to deliver pilots, reports, surveys, events, conferences and campaigns – supporting us in helping implement successful Deposit Return Schemes (DRS), Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) regulation and Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) programmes around the world, as well as the Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT) in the UK.

AMRC The Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) Cymru, in Flintshire, transform industrial and economic performance by making step changes in productivity, increasing competitiveness, developing new products and processes and training new talent and skills. Its 120-plus industrial members range from global giants like Boeing, Rolls-Royce, McLaren Automotive, BAE Systems and Airbus to small companies. Polytag is proud to be based at AMRC Cymru, where its team is supporting the further development of our describe, tag and trace technology.


Conwy County Borough Council

The Welsh Government is actively investigating which technologies could be used to enable and support digital kerbside Deposit Return Schemes. Polytag was proud to be selected to run a pilot in Conwy, North Wales, to test this over the summer of 2021. More details on the pilot can be found here.

WRAP works with businesses, individuals and communities to create a circular economy by reducing waste, developing sustainable products and use resources in an efficient way. For Polytag’s Conwy Digital Deposit Return Scheme (DDRS) Pilot, WRAP provided strategic guidance including communications support, canvassing services and ethnology studies (during and after the pilot).


Welsh Government

Polytag is proud to have worked closely with Howard Davies, Plastic Policy Manager for the Welsh Government, during the Conwy Digital Deposit Return Scheme (DDRS) Pilot. Building on its reputation for recycling success, in 2019 the Welsh Government published its Towards Zero Waste strategy in which it outlined an ambition to become a zero waste country by 2050 and the world leader in recycling.

Wales is making good progress. In 2020 the country confirmed a record high recycling rate of 65.14% for 2019/20, exceeding its 64% statutory target. Globally, it currently ranks third for recycling. However, the Welsh Government also recognises that it needs to do more and is leading the way when it comes to proving the viability of DDRS in the UK.
