Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) schemes have been widely implemented in different sectors within the European Union (EU). While they had a positive impact on collection and recycling rates, experts criticise their limited effects on waste prevention. The question remains: how can we unlock their full potential? Janine Röling (Recycling Network Benelux, RNB) and Axel Darut (Minderoo Foundation) will present concrete proposals for the EU context out of their recently published paper Let’s reshape EPR – for a game changing policy tool that supports prevention, reuse, separate collection and high-quality recycling. The subsequent discussion introduced by Piotr Barczak (ACEN Foundation) will center around making use of these considerations from the EU in non-European contexts.
Please join Minderoo Foundation, Recycling Network Benelux, and the ACEN Foundation for an insightful discussion about the future of EPR policy – to jointly advance EPR!
