EPR Toolbox: Know-how to enable Extended Producer Responsibility for packaging

Yunus Environment Hub is the co-chair of the PREVENT Waste Alliance working group on closing loops for packaging and extended producer responsibility (EPR). PREVENT Waste Alliance was initiated by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development to contribute to minimising waste, eliminating pollutants and maximising the reuse of resources in the economy worldwide. The first working group output is an EPR Toolbox that enables policy makers and local waste management stakeholders in low- and middle-income countries to finance and organise waste collection, sorting and recycling. The toolbox is centered around factsheets, FAQs, and case studies and was developed in collaboration with stakeholders from piloting partner countries Ghana and Indonesia.
