The Role of Extended Producer Responsibility Schemes for Packaging towards Circular Economies in APEC (Inglês)

The enormous amount of plastic waste – especially litter from plastic packaging – that leaks into the natural environment each year is a global concern with severe environmental consequences, particularly for marine life and human health. Limitations in waste collection and waste treatment systems exacerbate the issue. Ensuring proper collection and management of plastic packaging waste is critical for building a reuse and recycling system that enables a circular economy (CE). However, despite the efforts of APEC members, the recycling rate of post-consumption plasticpackaging remains relatively low in most APEC member economies. This report combines lessons learned from global case studies with insights from APEC members outline a series of recommendations for accelerating EPR implementation and operationalization in APEC member economies.
