Circular Connect: Design Advisory Subsidy

This PlasticsNZ subsidy is for businesses embracing circularity – the idea of designing products that go back into the supply chain when finished with, rather than into landfill. It covers systems, products and packaging. PlasticsNZ will subsidise up to 50% of consulting fees during your discovery and/or action planning phase(s) to help you achieve your 2025 plastic packaging targets.
