What you need to know about Extended Producer Responsibility

EPR frameworks and policies shift the burden of waste management from consumers and local governments to the actual producers of plastic packaging. While EPR can be considered a nice-to-have framework for circularity-conscious companies, it is quickly becoming a mandated framework for packaging & materials companies in South Africa and the EU.

How BanQu helps you with EPR


Thanks to our blockchain-based tech and on-the-ground implementation teams, we help companies map their value chains, gaining cradle-to-cradle visibility of their packaging & materials.


While we can integrate with any legacy or operating systems, as well as satellite imagery databases, the circularity and recycling data captured throughout your value chain on BanQu is primary, verifiable, and auditable for EPR compliance.


Once you have all of this great, reliable data in one place, you can use BanQu to generate customizable circularity reports at the click of a button. As needed, you can easily share your reports with stakeholders and auditors to prove your circularity & recycling efforts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why use BanQu for EPR compliance?

BanQu’s blockchain-based solutions help companies track their packaging & materials circularity cradle-to-cradle throughout their supply chains with primary, auditable data and reports. Making tracking and reporting on EPR a breeze.

How does BanQu help companies with EPR compliance?

We start by mapping out the value chain(s)s you need to track and implement the software for you on the ground, so you can easily collect and report on primary circularity & recycling data as needed.

Why should my company work toward EPR compliance?

EPR is quickly becoming a requirement for packaging & materials companies in major packaging regions of the world — such as South Africa, the EU, and Canada. These regions have historically set regulatory precedents in the recycling industry that are then later adopted more widely. So whether your company is based in one of those regions, or needs to kickstart its EPR journey to get ahead of the sustainable packaging curve, we recommend getting on the EPR train as soon as possible.
