Recyclers Accreditation Program

ACOR engaged Equilibrium to undertake a feasibility assessment and provide recommendations on the operation of an accreditation scheme for Australian recyclers.

ACOR engaged Equilibrium to undertake a feasibility assessment and provide recommendations on the operation of an accreditation scheme for recyclers.

Equilibrium drafted a brief discussion paper for stakeholders setting out the objectives, key issues for consideration and worked examples. We also undertook a risk assessment to identify overall industry risks, potential for proportional approach to recycling segments / streams, and regulatory alignment / overlap and coordination. 

We then identified and engaged with key stakeholders to gather input. This included ACOR members, other key industry groups, and Government. We also facilitated a member workshop.

Equilibrium investigated opportunities to use or create software / app to facilitate accreditation processes, including downstream, vendor assurance. Lastly, we developed recommendations including factors such as way forward, management options, reporting requirements, timeline and budget for establishing an accreditation program.
