The 2nd National Product Stewardship Forum
Chicago, June 14 - 15 2006
In meeting growing environmental challenges, product stewardship is becoming an increasingly important tool for policy-makers, corporations, state and local governments, and NGOs alike. What is the status of product stewardship and how has it been implemented to date? What role can it play in shaping a better environmental future? What can we learn about product stewardship from our European and Canadian colleagues, and from attempts to adopt it in the U.S.? Can government, the private sector, and others find common ground around the product stewardship approach and the ideas of "shared responsibility?"
