A lunch-to-lunch workshop on EPR – extended producer responsibility – held at the IIIEE last week, on 10-11 October, with the project funding from the Swedish Energy Agency, brought forward a number of important issues and challenges related to EPR design and implementation.

The workshop started with a 2-hour open session where experts engaged in EPR from various perspectives (industry, academia, NGOs) shared their views and insights on experiences of EPR, as well as current challenges, followed by a closed-discussion seminar.

The face-to-face discussion was an excellent opportunity to learn about concrete challenges facing various actors engaged in the implementation of EPR programmes for products such as electronics and packaging, as well as, to contemplate on possible solutions. In collaboration with the participants, IIIEE researchers seek to explore further opportunities to work on identified challenges!
