Lecture Description

The session sheds a light on different approaches and strategies which can act as a complement to Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for a well-functioning circular economy for packaging. Starting with an introduction to a variety of possible financing mechanisms, the session will then focus on EPR and Plastic Credits. Speakers from countries currently introducing or implementing EPR schemes are invited to share their perspectives on EPR and their reasons why or why not they consider using the concept of Plastic Credits for their national approaches to combat pollution caused by packaging.
