Description

The Circular Economy (CE) has become a common framework to which all activities in society must adjust. Although the CE covers much more than waste (energy and water are often forgotten), it is evident that these have been placed at the core of the actions undertaken by public administrations and the private sector. For this reason, the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) approach must, on the one hand, become a basic component of any action within the CE framework and, on the other hand, from the producers’ side, seek alignment and integration into global strategies.

EPR schemes allow producers to face the responsibilities that the regulations require of them within a defined scope. In this sense, waste ending up on the sea floor and beaches (marine litter) has become a diffuse area of responsibility due to the disparity of sources, materials and destinations.

That is why MARLICE maintains in this new edition a roundtable on the topic with the participation of individual companies, associations and EPR schemes that gather them, with the aim of recalling the state of play and showcasing the degree of progress achieved with concrete examples.
