This report emphasizes Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) as an important tool to hold manufacturers accountable for the plastic waste/packaging in its full cycle. The evaluation framework of the report is built on a thorough analysis of the country’s waste reduction and management system, and recycling market for plastic waste. This serves as foundation for the proposed elements and components of an extended producer responsibility (EPR) scheme for the Philippines, including short- and medium- term actions that need to be taken to lay the foundations for EPR.
