One of the missions of «Ecotechnologies» is to convince socially responsible companies that independent realization of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) in Russia is possible and to facilitate establishment of new waste management infrastructure (or at least to improve the existing one).
«Ecotechnologies» group has all the expertise and know-how needed today for the successful EPR projects development:
- Wide infrastructure for waste collection, being developed since 2005
- Transportation facilities and network of partners across Russia
- Over 50 waste sorting complexes supplying us with secondary raw materials on a regular basis
- Our own processing capacities and machine building premises.
We directly participate in evaluating new legislative documents and due to this we are fully versed in all the necessary legal nuances as to EPR responsibilities. And we suggest only those solutions in which we are 100% sure.
EcoTechnologies group also includes a non-commercial organization (NCO) «RusVtorPlast»
whose purpose is to unite progressive plastic waste processors and to develop this industrial segment in Russia to an extent when it is able to produce secondary polymers of adequate quality.
The importance of bringing Extended Producer Responsibility to Russia is hard to over-estimate. Although EPR is a new thing here, «Ecotechnologies» has received its first successful experience already in 2016. This proves that while completing EPR projects it is possible to achieve goals in the area of corporate social responsibility, in personnel involvement, in PR & GR and even in the area of service purchase optimization for waste management.
