Stewardship and Sustainability

Product Stewardship is a critical business partner. No longer should Product Stewardship be primarily known as simply a compliance driver or “license to operate” function, rather a vital part of the enterprise. This workshop will focus on how the Product Stewardship function contributes significantly to the bottom line and supports a company’s ability to enter and participate throughout the product life cycle.

This half-day workshop is designed for managers or experienced professionals, including product stewardship organization leaders, advanced career product stewards, EHS experts, and other experts from the regulatory, design, and business communities.

Workshop Focus Areas

  • Expanding global markets and assuring an efficient product launch
  • New product development
  • Sustainability and corporate responsibility
  • Developing and maintain a competitive advantage
  • Customer support and retention
  • Increasing complexity of the regulatory environment
  • Growing influence of non-governmental organizations
  • Desire for more transparency along the value chain
  • Influence of social media on consumers
