SAP Responsible Design and Production solution is SAP’s new flagship product, whose aim is to help producers manage their Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) obligations and plastic taxes and drive design changes to eliminate waste. Global regulations, EPR schemes and plastic taxes continue to increase worldwide. For instance, plastic taxes are effect in the UK in April 2022 and are expected to come into effect in Italy and Spain in 2023. The EU Green Deal stipulates targets for 70-100% recycling rates by 2030, depending on the material.
The solution capabilities listed in the figure above will help producers comply with the rapidly growing number of Global Regulations, EPR schemes and plastic taxes worldwide. Global obligations are not easily managed by current systems and involve manual data collection. Businesses need to manage costs and design a sustainable portfolio. SAP drives the transition to a circular product portfolio providing RDP solution in order to:
- Increase precision of payments for Extended Producer Responsibility obligations and Plastic Taxes
- Manage down cost of taxes and fees
- Drive growth through redesign to sustainable products
- Simplify reporting of voluntary commitments
