About us

Our operations

The Finnish SUP Producer Group Ltd is a producer responsibility organization established in 2022, playing its part in the implementation of the SUP Directive in Finland. We are a producer organization in accordance with the Waste Decree and the Government Decision, handling producer responsibility obligations on behalf of companies registered with it.

Our operations are non-profit. We do not engage in waste transport activities or in trade of SUP products. Our operations are funded through producer responsibility fees. Producers do not subsidize each other; each producer pays only their own share. The fees are based on the volumes placed on the market by the producer.

Producer Group's tasks

The purpose, tasks and responsibilities of the Finnish SUP Producer Group Ltd are based on legislation. The statutory purpose is to fulfill producer responsibility on behalf of affiliated producers.

In the SUP Directive, there are two types of producer responsibility

Traditional producer responsibility

Manufacturers and importers of the product are obligated to arrange for the waste management of discarded products and bear the resulting costs.
→ covers: fishing gear containing plastic

New cleaning cost responsibility

Manufacturers and importers are obliged to pay municipalities for the costs associated with preventing littering caused by their products, as well as the expenses related to cleaning up litter → covers: disposable food packaging containing plastic, wet wipes and balloons, as well as filtered cigarettes and cigarette filters.

The Producer Group manages producer responsibility obligations in the following manner:

  1. The Producer Group makes membership agreements with all producers, through which producers transfer their producer responsibility to the producer community.

      2. The Producer Group organizes itself or procures, to the necessary extent, external services from the market, whether provided by private or public entities.

      3. The Producer Group establishes necessary contracts with service providers, handles payments, monitors operations and provides information.

      4. The Producer Group maintains a public membership register, invoices members in accordance with decisions made by the producer group's management board and handles all producer responsibilities on behalf of its members.

      5. The Producer Group aggregates the information on products placed on the market according to the regulation (collection amounts, processed quantities, processing methods) and reports them annually to the authorities.
