Implementation of EPR schemes: Lessons learned and best practices

Extended Producer Responsibility schemes have been customised to different contexts and introduced in several countries. What have we learned from them?

Extended Producer Responsibility is one of the tools necessary for financing the collection and recycling of electronics and a range of other waste products. However, its potential benefits depend on proper implementation.

This session will share practical knowledge of EPR schemes and discuss complementary measures and solutions These can include a shift to new business models, the use of supporting policies or the extension of producer responsibility beyond national borders. The session will also debate about an inclusive model of EPR where the informal sector is properly recognised and engaged. Participants will dive deep into tools such as EPR but also other complimentary policy measures to increase the resource efficiency of electronics along its entire value chain.
