Extended Producer Responsibility

Ensuring products meet global regulations and defining clear strategies to achieve set standards.

What are the benefits of improved extended producer responsibility?

  • New markets, products and services
  • Greater profile
  • Improved business resilience
  • Opportunities to make savings and efficiencies

Product sustainability is an increasingly mainstream business requirement. Aside from the legislative and regulatory concerns, ignoring the origin of components and materials, the management of toxic and harmful substances and the sustainability impacts of consumption, disposal and recovery, can lead to significant business risks.
