Industry Workshop on Packaging Collection and Recovery Initiatives (PCRI) in Vietnam

January 15, 2019 @ 8:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Gone Adventurin’s studies examined the flow of materials through the post-consumer value chain and areas where the most impact can be made to improve rates of collection for recycling. As part of this research, multiple solutions – involving the industry, consumers, and governments – were explored as potential options to drive further recycling. PCRI is a holistic system-level solution that is being recommended for Vietnam, benchmarked against other successful systems in developing countries and customised based on on-ground realities.


Some key features of the Industrial Workshop on Packaging Collection and Recovery Initiatives (PCRI) system in Vietnam are:

  • An industry-led non-profit entity takes responsibility to drive high rates of recycling
  • Working with the existing informal sector to promote collection
  • Tackling collection and recycling of multiple packaging materials through a single entity
  • Driving collection and recycling of packaging materials through a material subsidy where needed



  • GA’s on-ground research on recycling and the informal sector in Vietnam
  • A knowledge-sharing session about various PCRI systems around the world
  • Introduction to proposed voluntary PCRI system for Vietnam
  • Role of companies in a PCRI system

* This event is by Invite-Only.
