It complements ISWA’s EPR+ library where you can find numerous articles of people dealing with EPR and their experiences and lessons learned.

During this first webinar the speakers will:

  • Introduce the concept of EPR (scope & remits, conditions, successes, & limits)
  • Give an historic overview of its roots
  • Present the status of today and will give an outlook to its development until the end of this decade.

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)

EPR is an environmental policy approach designed to shift the burden of managing certain end-of-life products from municipalities and taxpayers to the producers who place those products on the market. Beyond the end-of-life management stage, EPR also stimulates greater engagement of producers in the overall redesign of products and packaging, with the ultimate aim of reducing environmental and health impacts.

 

Master Class EPR: Understanding the basics. Wednesday 1st of July, 3 - 4.30 PM CEST.
