ISWA invites you to their webinar

Master Class EPR Systems and Vertical Integration

About this webinar

This Master Class is the third in a series of Master Classes jointly organized by ISWA, EXPRA and Product Stewardship Institute to explain the concept of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), its various application for various waste streams and in various countries as well as diving into hot topics and specific details.

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 Master Class our speakers will explain how to ensure a fair and functioning EPR system having vertical integrated PROs. Moreover, they will touch upon the current situation of competing PROs in Europe and we will hear from Germany on how they have ensured a level playing field with 10 competing PROs.

Speakers of this Master Class are:

  • Oliver Bretz, Partner at Eucid Law
  • Dr. Alexander Dröge, Secretary General at Stiftung Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (ZSVR)
  • Joachim Quoden, Managing Director of EXPRA. Chair of ISWA Working Group Legal Issues. ISWA Expert Legal & Policy.
  • Scott Cassel, Chief Executive Officer & Founder of Product Stewardship Institute.

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. The first two Master Classes on EPR are available on the ISWA YouTube page.

Why join this webinar?

All people who are already in touch with EPR today or might be in touch with EPR tomorrow will benefit from this series of webinars by increasing their knowledge and understanding so that they are able to develop their own opinion and are able to put third peoples statements, opinions, studies etc into context.

This free EPR webinar series is a partnership between EXPRA, Product Stewardship Institute and ISWA.
