Business Support for Product Stewardship

Waste, use of resources, and reduction in energy consumption are growing concerns for American legislators, regulators and the public. Many innovative companies are paying attention and responding with voluntary product stewardship initiatives and internal directives that best suit their business models.  Product stewardship legislation creates programs that are sensitive to market forces. Businesses like the ones below are finding ways to:

  • Design products that can be more easily recycled.
  • Use low or no toxicity materials that are not hazardous to human health and the environment.
  • Use recycled materials in the design of product and packaging.
  • Conserve resources and reduce waste at all stages, from product design to distribution.
