Việt Nam News, the national English language daily under the Vietnam News Agency, and the VINEXAD National Trade Fair & Advertising JSC on April 4th will jointly organise a seminar themed "Extended Producer Responsibility: From Policy to Implementation".

This is one of the key events within the framework of the 33rd Vietnam International Trade Fair (Vietnam Expo 2024) in Hà Nội.

Stipulated in Article 54 of the 2020 Environmental Protection Law and detailed in Government Decree No 08/2022/NÐ-CP dated January 10, 2022, the extended producer responsibility (EPR) required producers and importers of electronic products, lubricants, and various types of packaging to either recycle or pay fees to support waste recycling activities, starting from January 1, 2024.

According to industry experts, EPR is not only a responsibility but also an opportunity for businesses to develop more sustainably. By implementing EPR, businesses can meet the increasingly high demands of partners and participate extensively in the global value chain. Additionally, EPR is expected to contribute to preserving resources for future generations and reducing waste.

During the seminar, policymakers, experts, leaders of local and foreign businesses, along with other stakeholders, are expected to discuss the opportunities and challenges of implementing EPR in Việt Nam.
