Policy and Insights

Expert research, cost modelling, advice and services

We provide expert research, cost modelling, advice and services to help international organisations, national governments, local authorities and businesses develop and implement waste prevention and recycling policies.

We are working with national governments around the world to shape policy decisions that can be developed into actions that prevent waste.

Governments can come under intense pressure to combat issues such as food waste or plastic pollution and with climate change legislation, the environment is front and centre of the public’s minds.

Our technical experts are regularly called upon to advise and also provide ongoing technical support in the form of tools, guidance and reports.

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a mechanism by which greater emphasis is placed on producers to use more sustainable practices in the production and for the entire lifecycle of products and their management to end of use.

Consumption of a wide range of products continues to grow rapidly across the world and emissions associated with consumption and resources represent around 45% of all global greenhouse gas emissions, it is therefore imperative that these are tackled.

WRAP believes there is an opportunity to work with governments and business across the world to tackle this ever-growing problem and that EPR will play an important role.

We can provide guidance and expertise in the development, implementation and monitoring of EPR schemes across countries, regions and territories.

There are a number of ways in which WRAP can do this:

  • through partnership agreements
  • in an advisory capacity; and
  • as a co-delivery partner
