To stop packaging pollution we need a circular economy where we eliminate what we don't need, innovate towards new packaging, products and business models, and circulate all the packaging we do use. To circulate packaging, we need dedicated, ongoing, and sufficient funding for collection, sorting, and recycling – otherwise the economics simply do not stack up – it costs more to do, than the money it makes.

The only proven way to provide the necessary funding is through schemes where the companies putting packaging on the market are required to pay for its collection, sorting, and recycling — such schemes are called extended producer responsibility (EPR).

EPR can be more than a financing tool for recycling. It’s an opportunity to improve transparency, incentivise better packaging design and reduce carbon emissions.

The Circular Economy Show is a fortnightly discussion and debate around how we can move from a linear take-make-waste economy towards a circular economy.

In each episode, our hosts are joined by inspiring businesses, policymakers, academics, and designers to discuss how circular economy solutions are being scaled, at speed, to tackle global challenges and benefit business, society, and the environment.

Throughout 2021 we will be bringing you engaging conversations on topics including circular design, measuring circular economy performance at company level, financing the circular economy, and regenerative food production solutions to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss.
