Report: comparing Printed Paper and Packaging (PPP) EPR programs

23 April 2014

PAC NEXT has published the report "Policy Best Practices that Support Harmonization: Summaries of Eleven Global Extended Producer Responsibility Programs". Members identified that a variety of global policies and legislative approaches existed to improve packaging material recovery, with mixed success.
Several PAC NEXT members were particularly interested in discovering ways to reduce cost and regulatory complexity. As such, Printed Paper and Packaging (PPP) EPR programs in Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba and British Columbia were compared with EPR programs in Belgium, France, Austria, Germany, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Australia (Press Release PAC NEXT, 25 March 2014).
