Abstract [en]

This report is the primary outcome from Part I of the project “An extended producer responsibility (EPR) system and new business models to increase reuse and recycling of textiles in the Nordic region” initiated by the Nordic Waste Group (NAG). The report for Part 2 will be published in December 2014. This report summarizes the work carried out in 2013 and is presented in three sub-reports:

• Survey of existing EPR-systems and business models – Relevant types of EPR models and business models with potential for increasing recycling and reuse of textiles are identified and briefly described.

• Evaluation of eight EPR-systems and business models – Eight of the models identified in Report 1 are described in more detail, including a first qualitative evaluation.

• Costs and benefits of EPR-systems and two business models – Four of the eight models described and qualitatively evaluated in Report 2 are selected for a more quantitative evaluation of costs and benefits.

The report is part of the Nordic Prime Ministers' green growth initiative: “The Nordic Region – leading in green growth.” Read more in the web magazine “Green Growth the Nordic Way” at greengrowth
