German-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry: Environmental Reporting and Compliance Department

Environmental regulations are a significant aspect of international trade and play an instrumental role in business decisions. A sound knowledge of environmental legislations and compliance schemes is the key to both successful market entry and sustained success in export markets. 

EPR stands for Extended Producer Responsibility which is based on the “polluter pays” principle - a notion which entails the assumption of responsibility for waste management by the economic actors instead of the local authorities. In practice, the responsibility is therefore transferred from municipalities to producers. The aim of EPR in the long run is to encourage producers to take into account environmental considerations in the packaging and design of their products.

Founded in 1991, the Environmental Reporting and Compliance Department of the German-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry has since gained extensive expertise, in particular in the national implementation of European legislation regarding packaging, electrical and electronic equipment and batteries. The Department provides exporting companies with expert advice and comprehensive support, enabling them to concentrate on their core business.

  • Representation of your company’s interest before compliance schemes  
  • A global solution for all EU countries or even worldwide
