Associate Membership

Want to be part of OPRL in a different way?

At OPRL we’re all about collaboration across the packaging cycle to deliver circularity and a transformation in packaging resource efficiency.

Co-operation and transparency with partner organisations in the sector is key, so we’re launching our new OPRL Associate Member Scheme. This membership is free to organisations across the industry who want to be part of what we do but aren’t directly part of the packaging supply cycle themselves – groups like trade associations, councils, academic and research institutions and similar.

Please note: This membership does not give access to our Labelling Rules or tools and is not for organisations who come under our standard OPRL membership. These include Small Independent Businesses, Retailers and Brands, Packaging Manufacturers, Packer/Fillers and other suppliers, Design Agencies and Waste Management Companies. To register for our standard membership, please go here.


Associate Members will have:

  • Space on our member website promoting your organisation to our members
  • A newsletter keeping you up to date with what we’re doing, industry news and events
  • An opportunity to feature in our newsletter, sent to over 2K contacts each month
  • An opportunity for shared communications, where appropriate
  • An opportunity to contribute to expert groups within OPRL
  • Collaboration on policy issues

As part of this collaboration, in return we ask for:

  • An opportunity to contribute to expert groups within OPRL
  • Collaboration on policy issues
  • Space on your website promoting OPRL, linking back to our website
  • Support for our activity and campaigns via social media
  • An opportunity to promote OPRL and our services to your members via your newsletters etc.
  • An opportunity to speak or attend your events or exhibitions
  • Share insights e.g. from member surveys, reports
