  • A Wake-up Call

    In 1988, the EU Commission drafted the first directive aiming to minimise the environmental impact of WEEE, promote recycling and reduce resource consumption. The directive introduced the concept of producer responsibility, whereby producers and importers are responsible for their products, even at the end of their life cycle.

     

  • The Birth of an Idea: ERP

    European Recycling Platform (ERP) was created to provide the first pan-European take-back schemes for the collection and recycling of e-waste. Later, Battery and Packaging Compliance Schemes were added as services, too.

  • The WEEE Directive

    The EU Directive on Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment was adopted on January 27, 2003. It established the Producer Responsibility Principle for financing waste management and the creation of incentives for eco-design; the harmonization of national measures and the establishment of minimum standards for WEEE management; the preservation of resources and the promotion of best practices as well as the diversion of WEEE from landfills and incinerators.

  • An Innovative Solution: ERP

    ERP to implement the principles set forth by the EU WEEE Directive: integrate product end-of-life management into the business cycle; drive recycling compliance scheme costs down; ensure a “no compromise on quality” stance; influence European and national legislation to ensure competition on take-back markets and promote the Producer Responsibility Principle.
