Extended producer responsibility (EPR) is an environmental protection policy aimed at reducing the total environmental impact of a product and its packaging by requiring product manufacturers to take responsibility for the entire lifecycle of their products, including their packaging, including take-back, recycling, and final disposal. The producer, who decides design and marketing decisions, bears the primary responsibility for EPR.
