EPR – Extended Producer Responsibility in Germany & France

What is EPR (Extended producer responsibility)?

Extended Producer Responsibility or EPR, is a new policy enforced by an increasing number of countries under which the producer’s responsibility for the treatment/disposal of post consumer products is increased. This policy attaches a financial responsibility to the producer which aims to create better waste management and an incentive to reduce waste at its source.

In other words, EPR is an environmental policy that makes producers of products subject to EPR requirements responsible for the entire life cycle of the products that they introduce on the market, from product design until the end of their life cycle (including waste collection).
