Ecomodulation of fees can play a vital role in prioritizing product design for as waste prevention, reusability, reparability and recyclability.

In this analysis commissioned by the EEB and partners within the Rethink Plastic alliance and Break Free From Plastic, Ecologic Institute focuses on four product streams: plastic/packaging, waste electric and electronic equipment (WEEE), batteries and textiles to investigate the four cross-sectional aspects: modulation criteria, size of the fees, cost coverage and revenue use.

The analysis suggests that a systemic change in Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and ecomodulation of fees is required which is more focused on waste prevention measures.
