Return to sender - producer responsibility and product policy
This report is the output of our 'Sustainability Through Producer Responsibility' project funded through the DTI’s Sustainable Technologies Initiative.
Produced in three sections the report starts by reviewing the lessons to be drawn from existing producer responsibility initiatives and their implementation in Europe and, in particular, the UK. In the second section it examines the broader agenda created by Integrated Product Policy, the European thematic strategies and what this means for producer responsibility. In the final section contains recommendations on how producer responsibility can be taken forward in the light of these agendas and with the objective of achieving ambitious waste, resource and environmental objectives.
