8th Series Product Stewardship Institute Networking Calls
Interested in receiving in-depth information on cutting edge issues in the product stewardship field? PSI networking conference calls offer a carbon- free alternative to in-person workshops and meetings. PSI networking call participants can listen to expert presentations and ask questions on timely product stewardship issues from the comfort of the home or office.
In order to build the case for product stewardship in state legislatures around the country, local governments and other stakeholders need information about product stewardship results. Specifically, is product stewardship improving environmental quality? Is it saving local governments money? This call will provide facts and figures on product stewardship’s benefits at the local and state level. It will introduce PSI’s Financial Benefits Calculator and series of case studies and factsheets about product stewardship’s bottom line benefits, as well as work underway at the California Integrated Waste Management Board to document societal benefits from EPR.
