The Extended Producer Responsibility Alliance (EXPRA) is a new organisation, set up in 2013, with the purpose of effectively promoting an authentic application of the extended producer responsibility’s principle (EPR) for packaging waste. The foundations of EXPRA rest on the belief of delivering quality waste management services to all citizens, which are embedded in a sustainable and global waste management vision.
EXPRA believes in offering waste management solutions in a way that is both cost effective and resource efficient. The members of EXPRA consider their activities to be integrated in a mission, where industry demonstrates its societal responsibility. The members of EXPRA are run and owned by the obliged companies and our members provide waste management solutions based on the principle of EPR, on a not-for profit/profit for re-distribution model.
EXPRA members aim to deliver services for the benefit of both inhabitants and industry, and work side by side with local authorities. This ensures that the most effective environmental means of waste management will be delivered to society.
The EXPRA members currently come from 18 different countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, FYROM, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, and Turkey. In all of these countries, the extended producer responsibility principle is a fundamental part of effective environmental management. The number of EXPRA members is expected to grow with more countries coming on board in the near future.
