Extended Producer Responsibility Assessment Report
The private sector is a central player in upholding ecological and sustainability stewardship and materializing it into actionable schemes, all of which lies at the heart of the concept of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). EPR is defined as a conceptual framework intended to shift the environmental responsibility of a product’s design, manufacturing, usage and disposal to producers.
This assessment is meant to provide international practices on EPR and its implementation models, while providing a synopsis on the status of EPR in Egypt. It puts forth a set of suggestions to support the promotion and the gradual implementation of EPR and its schemes.
