One of the most influential areas of government environmental policy has been the development and gradual implementation of extended producer responsibility (EPR).

The objective of EPR is to promote the conservation of resources, reduce the use and generation of toxic and hazardous materials and energy, and reduce the quantity of wastes for final disposal.

Many multinational companies have launched comprehensive and innovative environmental programs on their own, not just for themselves but for their suppliers as well, most of whom are SMEs.

"EPR is a logical extension of the "polluter-pays principle. It rests on an argument that the environmental impacts of resource depletion, waste and pollution are a function of the system of production and consumption of goods and services. Those impacts are substantially determined at the point of production, which is when key choices are made on materials, on processing and finishing technology, on product function and durability, on systems of distribution and marketing  and so on. If that system is to evolve in a way that reduces environmental impacts, then there is a need for policies that create appropriate feedback mechanisms for producers that will direct producers' investment towards continuous environmental improvement,"

~ Helen Lewis and John Gertsakis, authors of Design + Environment

In many countries, EPR is considered an effective policy mechanism to promote the integration of the life-cycle environmental costs associated with products into the market price for the product. Various approaches to EPR policy are being watched specifically because they appear to stimulate innovation and business success as well as reduce overall life-cycle environmental impacts.
