The goal of extended producer responsibility (EPR) when it began in the 1990s was to create a policy strategy that could address the challenges of a growing waste stream. It aimed to shift the responsibility for the end-of-life management of products and materials from municipalities to producers. This has proved very effective and as such EPR programs are in a constant state of development throughout the world.
Programs globally place different obligations on producers and one of the challenges faced by companies today is ensuring their compliance in all of the countries they operate in.
