What is Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)?

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), a principle of EU environmental policy, obligates manufacturers, importers, and traders to sustainably design the entire lifecycle of their products by being responsible for the environmentally friendly design, production, collection, recycling, and disposal of their products. Various EU directives and regulations, including the Waste Framework Directive, the WEEE Directive, and the Packaging Directive, as well as initiatives like the European Green Deal, define and regulate EPR to minimize the environmental impact of products, promote the circular economy, and reduce environmental strain throughout a product's lifecycle.
