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.
The growth of the product stewardship movement means that new people are getting involved all the time. This Networking Call will provide an introductory overview for policymakers and practitioners seeking a better understanding of the basic concepts of product stewardship and the evolution of the product stewardship movement. What is the origin of the product stewardship movement and what goals does it hope to achieve? How does it relate to extended producer responsibility? What are the expected roles of manufacturers, retailers, local, state, and federal agencies, waste management companies, and other stakeholders? How will your job change as a result of product stewardship programs and legislation? What is the status of the movement and where is it heading? How can you get involved? PSI staff, government members, and corporate partners will share their experiences and insights in a "virtual roundtable" format that will encourage questions from phone participants. We will outline examples of product stewardship programs at the local, state, national and international levels, and explore emerging issues in the field.
Scott Cassel (PSI), Sierra Fletcher (PSI), Ann Pistell (ME Department of Environmental Protection), Scott Klag (Metro Regional Government, Oregon), Mark Kurschner (Product Care Association), Chris Eaves (Ace Hardware)
