Master Class EPR: Understanding the basics

About this webinar

This webinar is the start of a series of webinars jointly organized by ISWA and EXPRA 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 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.

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 EPR+ webinar series is a partnership between EXPRA and ISWA with support from the Product Sterwardship Institute.
