Circular Economy Package: EXPRA calls for enhanced Extended Producer Responsibility and recycling criteria

EXPRA is calling on policymakers to safeguard the primary role the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) has to play in transitioning towards a circular economy.
The reviewed EU waste legislation acknowledges that EPR forms an essential part of an efficient waste-management process. Now this approach needs to be translated into strong common requirements for EPR schemes.

EXPRA moreover welcomes the options set out for recycling measurement. However, the “final recycling process” definition should be adjusted in a bid to ensure data accuracy and reliability as well as reporting transparency and compliance.
