How can EPR promote sustainable consumption and production?
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is an environmental policy instrument, under which producers are given a significant responsibility to tackle the environmental impacts of products throughout their lifespan, from the design and manufacture phases through end-of-life.
The EPR Club, a platform gathering key stakeholders and experts to exchange and debate about EPR in Europe, is inviting to a reflection on the link between EPR and sustainable consumption and production.
During the event not only potential wider impacts of EPR on producers (eco-design including eco modulation of fees, repair&reuse, new business models (leasing, etc), communication campaigns) and consumers (access to information and price signals) but also how EPR schemes can support local initiatives on reducing waste and promoting sustainable consumption (public awareness, boost repair activities) will be analysed.
This event on 16 November 2022 (14:00 – 16:30 CET) is also part of the activities of the Leadership Group on Cities and Regions of the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform.
