In 2020 the french Anti-Waste and Circular-Economy law was voted, in order to reduce the waste generated by the construction sector and help fight the illegal littering of this waste. To address this France opted for the creation of an Extend Producer Responsibility (EPR) scheme for construction industry in order to manage the waste generated. The aim of this study is to establish which incentives lead to the inclusion of an EPR scheme in this law and understand the limitations and challenges for this scheme.
To research this, interviews were conducted with relevant stakeholders and an literature review was preformed. It was found that there are three underlying incentives that lead to the inclusion of an EPR scheme in the law, an economic, environmental and organizational incentive. The economic incentives revolves around limiting the cost of handling the waste and make sure that the producer bears the cost of this. The environmental incentive originates from a aspiration to limit the environmental impact of the waste produced by the construction sector. The organizational incentive focuses on the management of the waste. The main challenge of the implementation of an EPR scheme was found to be the delay of its technical implementation, which mainly is stated by the interviewees to be due to the complexity of the law and the number of stakeholder involved. Lastly the findings of this study will be discussed and contextualized.
