The principle of product stewardship has expanded broadly in recent years to encompass every aspect of production, from development to disposal. It’s not just about recycling bottles and batteries anymore. This council provides members a forum to exchange ideas and best practices on how to lead companies through the evolving landscape of regulatory compliance and product responsibility. Topics discussed include:

  • Product risk management
  • Regulatory advocacy
  • Process development
  • Value chain partnering
  • Societal engagement
  • Talent management

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
