ACR+, as Secretariat of the EPR Club, together with its member CITEO, organised a EU GREEN WEEK 2022 partner event titled “EPR principles as a bridge between waste and products policies” on 1 June 2022.

The first discussion panel focused on how design and implementation of EPR policies should motivate producers to improve the design of their products and packaging, facilitating circular business models such as performance-based contracting, maintenance, reuse, recycling, cradle-to-cradle, sharing platforms. The panel also addressed how outcomes and experiences gained through EPR on packaging could be applied to more products and sectors, starting with the ones producing the most waste and litter, helping to achieve the result of motivating industries to continuously improve their products and processes and stimulating citizens to adopt more sustainable consumption behaviours. 

The second panel discussed which policy options for a revision of the Waste Framework Directive could work to reach municipal waste prevention objectives, and how cities and regions are already working on good practices to make circular economy a tangible and not so far future. 

The recording and the presentations are available on the event page.
