Thursday, April 25, 2024 | 3:00-3:45 p.m. ET

Over the past two decades, state lawmakers have demonstrated growing interest in extended producer responsibility (EPR), a policy approach that assigns producers greater responsibility for the end-of-life management of the products they introduce to the market. EPR programs aim to reduce public spending on waste management, increase recycling, and contribute to innovations in product design.
