CPCB notice to 52 producers for failing to fulfill Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) (Relevant for GS Prelims & Mains Paper III; Environment)

The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has put 52 producers, brand owners and importers, including big online retailers such as Amazon and Flipkart, and companies such as Patanjali Ayurved and Britannia, on notice, for failing to take responsibility for their plastic waste.

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)
It is eight years since the concept of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) was incorporated into the Plastic Waste Management Rules, but municipal and pollution control authorities have failed to persuade commercial giants to put in place a system to collect and process the waste. Tighter rules in 2016 and some amendments two years later put the onus on producers and brand owners to come up with an action plan for the retrieval of waste within six months to a year, but that too failed to take off.

Recovering materials from garbage should be a high priority, considering that India is the third highest consumer of materials after China and the U.S.
