(EXTENDED PRODUCER RESPONSIBILITY ALLIANCE), founded in 2013, is the alliance for 26 packaging and packaging waste recovery and recycling systems from 24 countries which are owned by obliged industry and work on a not-for-profit basis. EXPRA acts as the authoritative voice and common policy platform representing the interests of all its member packaging recovery and recycling organizations founded and run by or on behalf of obliged industry.
The aim is to ensure the recovery and recycling of packaging waste in the most economically efficient and ecologically sound manner. Apart from requiring the co-ordination and alignment of individual member positions, the task of safeguarding common interests involves the projection of a coherent, unified policy and image to the outside world.
Incorporated as an international non-profit alliance under the Belgian law, EXPRA is headquartered in Brussels.
