Landbell Group contributes to TES Academy workshop

5 July 2023

Extended producer responsibility (EPR) continues to gain global popularity and is a powerful strategy to support a transformative change towards a circular economy.

To further improve the implementation and overall understanding of EPR, the TES Academy has launched a transformation process to discuss EPR at an international level. The TES Academy is an in-house research project at the German Environment Agency (UBA).

The process is called: Promoting EPR in international law for a sustainability transformation towards a circular economy.

It was officially launched with a 3-day workshop in Dessau-Roßlau, Germany from 27th to 29th June. The workshop analysed EPR in detail, its current successes and use-cases, and provided an outlook to the future.

The goal of the process is to increase the visibility of EPR in public, scientific, and political discourse, as well as support the efficacy of the envisioned measures.

Landbell Group was represented in the workshops by Dr Thomas Fischer, Head of Market Intelligence & Governmental Affairs.

Landbell Group operates multiple producer responsibility organisations for WEEE, batteries and packaging across the globe, so contributes its vast knowledge of the sector and extensive experience to the TES Academy process.

The process helps to inform international lawmakers such as the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) in their policy-making process.
