Retail & Consumer Goods Packaging

This session will explain the principles of extended producer responsible and respective EPR systems that can ensure the proper treatment of (plastic) packaging so that only a few plastics leak into the environment. This is achieved by establishing and running sustainable and efficient collection, sorting and recycling systems with accompanying communication and awareness campaigns backed up by anti-litter initiatives and support for companies to design their packaging in a sustainable way, leading to drastically less landfill and litter. The principles will be demonstrated by best practices from the field, meaning the work of various EPR systems in Europe and abroad.
