Sweden is widely recognised as a pioneer in Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), a policy instrument designed to hold producers accountable for their packaging during the post-consumption phase of the product life cycle.
In the midst of a transitional phase, Sweden’s framework stands out as an intriguing example of both implemented and evolving EPR strategies for managing packaging waste.
The upcoming webinar will feature a keynote address by Professor Thomas Lindhqvist, the visionary who originally coined the term Extended Producer Responsibility. Professor Lindhqvist will provide a comprehensive overview, delving into the historical background of EPR and offering insights into the anticipated future role of this policy instrument in shaping the Circular Economy. His expertise promises to guide the audience through a nuanced understanding of the evolution and potential impact of EPR on sustainable waste management practices.
