Abstract in Arabic

This report is the primary outcome from Part II of the project “An extended producer responsibility (EPR) system and new business models to increase reuse and recycling of textiles in the Nordic region” initiated by the Nordic waste group (NAG). The full project – comprising Part I and II – is part of the Nordic Prime Minister’s green growth initiative, The Nordic Region – leading in green growth. The aim of the Part II of the project is to propose three packages of policy instruments for EPR systems and business models based on lessons learned in Part I of the project. Further, the aim is to assess the potential of the different EPR systems and business models in terms of critical factors, risks and synergies. It has been carried out through a combination of literature studies and consultation with key stakeholders.
