Joint Industry Committee (JIC) On The Environment


The Joint Industry Committee (JIC) is a group comprising the:

  • Convenience Stores & Newsagents Association (CSNA)
  • EM News Distribution Ltd
  • Local Ireland
  • Magazines Ireland
  • Newspread Ltd
  • NewsBrands Ireland
  • The National Federation of Retail Newsagents (NFRN)
  • The Newspaper Publishers Association (NPA)

JIC was launched in November 2008 with a mandate to address and find solutions for a range of industry issues via self-regulation, rather than statutory intervention. Through discussion and co-operation, JIC aims to create a strong, cohesive relationship between retailers, wholesalers and publishers that will ensure the workings with significant environmental benefits.
