CCET is organising a webinar that features speakers from the Ministry of the Environment, local municipalities, recycling companies, the beverage federation, Containers and Packaging Recycling Association, and others involved in the recycling of PET bottles in Japan. It will be held in October in consideration of urban sustainability, as that month is defined as "Urban October" by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT). CCET has continuously supported partner countries’ governments in waste management, especially among developing countries in Asia. The aim of this event is to introduce Japanese PET bottle recycling initiatives and best practices to government officials, local authorities, beverage companies, recycling consultants and others involved in waste management in developing countries. At the same time, the webinar provides an opportunity for Japanese participants to gain an overview of PET bottle recycling in Japan. The webinar will include presentations and discussions on the background, drivers, successes and challenges of PET bottle recycling in Japan, including the role of government, technology development and the responsibilities of manufacturers.
