EPR Community

We believe that cooperation lies at the heart of innovation. More and more countries are putting EPR on their agendas and an increasing number of organisations are focusing on developing implementation measures. Together, we can coordinate our efforts, share knowledge, and be at the forefront of innovative EPR design.

Be part of the global conversation on EPR!

Our EPR community boasts a vibrant network of diverse perspectives, collectively shaping the international EPR discourse. For the public, we offer insightful webinars and discussions on pressing topics of EPR development and implementation. Members of the PREVENT Waste Alliance can also join our closed community space and connect with other EPR experts at insightful workshops, matchmaking sessions, and our internal member platform PREVENT Hub. Through our strong network and broad variety of expertise, we provide a safe space to discuss fundamental EPR concepts, as well as to pilot and scale innovative EPR approaches.

„I am glad we found the GAP for EPR through the PREVENT Waste Alliance who readily helped connect us with several EPR experts. Thanks to their support, we successfully organized the event of 'Thai-EU Experts' Exchange on Circular Economy and the EPR in Packaging' in Bangkok, Thailand.“

„We are very grateful to PREVENT as host of the GAP for EPR as they helped us with very technical issues related to the implementation of a Packaging EPR. They activated a network of international experts and within an hour, we had a rich exchange where we left with possible solutions to the problems raised.“
