Nigel Harvey to present at Parliamentary Sustainability Group event: Key principles of Extended Producer Responsibility

design principles for extended producer responsibility_Parliamentary Sustainability Group event 19 JulyRecolight CEO Nigel Harvey will present at a meeting of the All Party Sustainable Resource Group on 19 July. The discussions will feed into UK strategy on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR).  There are already EPR systems in the UK covering WEEE, batteries, and packaging.  But Government is now considering if, and how to set up systems for new product groups.

Nigel Harvey will discuss the operation of current systems, and the importance of maintaining Producer oversight of producer responsibility legislation.  He will also discuss the need for better controls and enforcement of non-compliant sales through online marketplaces.  Representatives from WRAP, TechUK, and REPIC will also be speaking at the event.

Defra are expected to publish their Resources and Waste Strategy towards the end of 2018.  It is widely anticipated that Extended Producer Responsibility will feature prominently.  EPR is increasingly seen as a way of funding the collection and treatment of waste, and of encouraging the adoption of circular economy principles.
