The Extended Producer Responsibility Alliance (EXPRA), founded in 2013, is the umbrella organisation for packaging and packaging waste recovery and recycling systems which are owned by obliged industry and work on a not-for-profit basis. EXPRA acts as the authoritative voice and common policy platform representing the interests of all its member packaging recovery and recycling organisations founded and run by or on behalf of obliged industry.
These national recovery organisations are pursuing similar goals, essentially finding themselves and their stakeholders in a similar situations. They have set themselves the task of relieving industrial companies and commercial enterprises of their individual obligation to take back used sales packaging through the operation of a scheme which fulfills these obligations on a nation-wide basis on behalf of their member companies.
The aim is to ensure the recovery and recycling of packaging waste in the most economically efficient and ecologically sound manner. The members of EXPRA wish to demonstrate that the recycling of used packaging is an important step on the path towards the sustainable development that is necessary to safeguard our planet for future generations.
