Abstract: The Duales System Deutschland (DSD) is an association of the German packaging industry to collect, sort and recycle packaging waste from consumers.

So far, scholars attribute the limited progress to a circular economy to a variety of cultural, regulatory, market and technological barriers (de Jesus & Mendonça, 2018;Kirchherr et al, 2018;Ritzén & Sandström, 2017).…”

“…Besides defining 'what' has to be done, statutes must also specify who does what, and establish obligations and responsibilities of each involved party [17,[23][24][25]. Third, monitoring should be systematic and regular to avoid free riding [17,22,23,25]. Finally, regulators must keep in mind that agreements are fragile mechanisms that need to be supported by additional policy decisions and initiatives [23].…”
