Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues (CESD) on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR): Final Report

From Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) to Ultimate Producer Responsibility (UPR): the Concept Goes Global

The Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues (CESD) on “Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)” explored the global evolution of EPR concepts and practices.

The CESD were designed as a four-month multi-stakeholder / multi-country dialogue stream comprising of four virtual meetings that employed a mix of discussion methodologies, leadership impulses, and e-collaboration to identify, draw out, and co-create ideas via GIZ’s GreenTechKnowledgeHub.

Participants included policy makers, businesses, civil society, academia, think tanks and international organisations. The dialogues took place on 18 October 2023, 15 November 2023, 6 December 2023, and 17 January 2024. Each CESD consisted of 35 invited participants with backgrounds from 20 different countries. To complete the dialogue series, a public presentation was offered on 30 January 2024.
