Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) has already been widely adopted by governments and its record of success in increasing material recovery rates has triggered a debate about expanding the use of the approach beyond the traditional use to cover end-of-life costs that occur at the domestic level. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Zero Waste Scotland (ZWS), as part of an international consortium, have each recently published papers with discussion of relatively novel applications of EPR to environmental impacts (design considerations, pollution and littering, etc.) that occur throughout the product lifecycle. These papers explore both possibilities and potential limits of the EPR approach.


Please join OECD, ZWS, and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation for an insightful discussion about the future of EPR policy. Join us – to jointly advance EPR!
