What do we do

Erion Care is the first national EPR Compliance Scheme dedicated to counteracting the littering of tobacco product waste as well as reducing its impact on the environment and ensuring its proper disposal. In accordance with the provisions of Legislative Decree 196/2021 (SUP Decree), the Compliance Scheme is committed on behalf of its Members to:

  • prevent the littering and dispersion in the environment of waste from tobacco products with filter and filters marketed for use in combination with tobacco products (“REFILLS”), including through information and public awareness campaigns;
  • finance REFILLS removal activities, i.e. collection, transport and treatment;
  • collect data on the functioning of the EPR system and communicate them to the competent institutions.

Erion Care Producers represent about 90% of the tobacco industry in terms of products placed on the market. The Compliance Scheme is open to the participation of all Producers in the sector.
