About the Council

The principle of product stewardship has expanded broadly in recent decades to encompass every nearly every aspect of a product's lifecycle, from development through its use and end-of-life management/disposal. Modern stewardship organizations are thus a vital part of a company's "societal license to operate." This Council provides Members with a forum to exchange ideas and best practices on how to lead companies through the evolving landscape of product safety for people and the environment, regulatory compliance, and product responsibility.


  • Product safety and risk management
  • Regulatory compliance, external and societal engagement
  • Stewardship work processes
  • Value chain partnering
