Global Action Partnership for EPR

Jointly advancing EPR - GIZ, WWF and OECD have partnered to establish the Global Action Partnership for Extended Producer Responsibility, the “GAP for EPR”. The partnership also receives circular economy support from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and is in close collaboration with UNEP on providing technical support to governments and PROs.

The GAP for EPR provides a one-stop-shop for EPR. It strives to create a common understanding of EPR, build an international community to share knowledge and expertise, and offer technical support on EPR development worldwide. You can:

  • Browse through the extensive library of EPR-related resources
