About the EPR
Extended Producer Responsibility is an environmental protection strategy to reach an environmental objective of a decreased total environmental impact from a product, by making the manufacturer of the product responsible for the entire life cycle of the product and especially for the take-back, recycling, and final disposal of the product.

What is changing with EPR?
Extended Producer Responsibility is an environmental policy which has been recently introduced in India. EPR requires a producer to take responsibility for the entire lifecycle for the products that they put into the market, including their disposal.

The changes to EPR, which started from the year 2022, shifts the cost of collecting household or industrial waste from the taxpayer to the producer.
