ACR+, as Secretariat of the EPR Club, together with CITEO, is organising a EU GREEN WEEK 2022 partner event titled “EPR principles as a bridge between waste and products policies”. The event will take place online on 1 June from 14:00 to 16:00 CET.
A first discussion panel will focus on how the design and implementation of extended producer responsibility (EPR) policies should motivate producers to improve the design of their products and packaging, and facilitating circular business models such as performance-based contracting, maintenance, reuse, recycling, cradle-to-cradle, and sharing platforms. A second panel will discuss which policy options are the best for a revision of the Waste Framework Directive, in order to reach municipal waste prevention objectives, and how EPR actors, including cities and regions, are already working on good practices to make circular economy a tangible and not so far future.
