Extended Producer Responsibility for Plastic Packaging in South Africa

Farm Design was commissioned to design the synthesis report on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) in the plastics packaging industry. The report illustrated the PRO market and governance structure, stakeholder roles and responsibilities, policy instruments and compliance.

EPR is a key policy instrument to address increasing volumes of plastic pollution and ensure a transparent and accountable industry and government.
