Abstract [en]

This report is the primary outcome from Part II of the project “An extended producer responsibility (EPR) system and new business models to increase reuse and recycling of textiles in the Nordic region”. This report is the second and final report from this project.

The report proposes three packages of policy instruments:

• Mandatory extended producer responsibility with a supplementary tax on hazardous chemicals in textiles.

• Voluntary collective EPR with supplementary recycling certificates and raw material fees.

• Pool of policy instruments for new business models that in-crease the active lifetime, reuse and eventual recycling of textiles.

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