Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Antonia Loyzaga recently delivered a keynote speech at the BusinessMirror’s Coffee Club event on "EPR Law: What goes around comes around" in Alabang, Muntinlupa City. In her message, Secretary Loyzaga emphasized the significance of the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Act of 2022 and stressed the necessity of a comprehensive approach involving both society and the government in implementing the law. The primary objective of the EPR Act is to facilitate effective waste recovery measures in the country and combat environmental pollution, particularly related to plastic packaging waste. The EPR law requires large companies to adopt and implement policies for the proper management of plastic packaging wastes. ##
