Learn about the world’s best producer responsibility programs to manage packaging and printed paper.
Imagine a world where packaging is minimal, and what remains is reused and recycled, with few environmental impacts. Strong extended producer responsibility (EPR) programs can help us get there. Under advanced EPR systems, businesses have incentive to incorporate eco design, waste prevention, reuse, and recycling into their operations, returning valuable resources to the circular economy. EPR can help your business and government meet sustainability goals, save money, create green jobs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
This PSI facilitated webinar will begin a global conversation on challenges and opportunities to managing packaging and printed paper (PPP). Speakers from the Extended Producer Responsibility Alliance (EXPRA) and high-performing European and Canadian EPR organizations will explain what EPR is, how successful EPR systems work, and the benefits EPR can deliver – including better recycling infrastructure and increased recycling, eco design, and public awareness. The speakers will also examine EPR’s role in advancing the circular economy and preventing plastics pollution. Participants will leave the webinar with guidance on what is necessary to set up a successful EPR system and next steps to continue the global conversation.
