Pioneering Sustainability company, The Activ Group, today welcomed the decision by the Minister for the Environment, Sussan Ley, to approve its application to become a co-regulatory arrangement as part of the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme.
Helen Jarman, Founder and CEO of The Activ Group says “The Activ Group brings a wealth of knowledge to the delivery of the NTCRS. The company is Asia Pacific’s leading Product Stewardship operations specialist, having designed or operated many of Australia’s leading stewardship initiatives for over 20 years”.
“We look forward to bringing a sense of forward momentum and innovation to the sector, which is needed to revive the sector, too focused on being garbage collectors, and not focused on the goal of driving the circular economy”.
Jarman says, “The Ecoactiv Digital Platform will form the backbone of this new initiative”.
The platform, a world-first innovation, is a circular economy hub for connecting consumer durables to multiple circular economy solutions, including recommerce, donation and of course, recycling.
The unique digital platform makes it more convenient for consumers to find and access collection services across the country, including remote area home collections.
We see that integrating the NTCRS into the broader sustainability initiatives for member liable parties is critical for accelerating the adoption sustainability beyond the NTCRS, through the integration of multiple waste streams, product stewardship initiatives, as well as driving our clients’ commercial outcomes through connecting liable parties to their consumers and retail partners.
Ecoactiv was launched in June 2020 with the support of JB Hi-Fi and The Good Guys as part of the emeals program.
