About the EPR Club
The European Commission adopted an ambitious Circular Economy Package in order to stimulate Europe's transition towards a circular economy and to boost global competitiveness, foster sustainable economic growth and
generate new jobs. The Package includes revised legislative proposals on waste
which sets clear
targets for reduction of waste and establishes an ambitious long-term path for waste management and recycling.
The concept of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is at the centre
of European Waste and Resources Policies since it represents a powerful tool to increase material recycling and to drivethe transition to a Circular economy.
The EPR Club is glad
to provide support of “know-how” on this subject. By gathering different stakeholders (public authorities at all levels, EPR
schemes, waste management companies, material federations, NGOs) the EPR Club allows a dialogue on the EU policy developments and technical
implementation of EPR schemes throughout Europe. It focuses on both
existing EPR schemes and on future perspectives.
