What is product stewardship

What is Product Stewardship?

  • Shared Product Responsibility

  • Managing the environmental impacts at all stages of the product life cycle

  • Avoid end-of-life product management

  • Putting Environmental Price signal in cost

  • Allowing for Change where most Effective

How is product stewardship different from recycling

Recycling:

Focuses on single material products

Focus on Easy to Recycle Products

Consumer Oriented

Focus is on End-of-Life

Responsibility is with Government

Lots of effective Programs Already Exist

Product Stewardship:

Focuses on complex products and processes

Is Business Oriented

Looks at the whole product chain

Requires cooperation between different parts of product chain

Responsibility is with businesses

New approaches are being developed

How is Product Stewardship Different from Recycling?


Product stewardship defined

Product Stewardship Defined

Product Stewardship is an environmental management strategy that means whoever designs, produces, sells, or uses a product takes responsibility for minimizing the product's environmental impact throughout all stages of the products' life cycle.

The greatest responsibility

lies with whoever has the

most ability to affect the

lifecycle environmental

impacts of the product.


Principles of product stewardship

Principles of Product Stewardship

From the Product Stewardship Institute

  • Responsibility assigned to the industry

  • Costs are internalized

  • Incentives for cleaner products and sustainable management practices

  • Flexible management strategies are used

  • Clear roles and relationships

    • Industry – provides leadership, primary responsibility, develops programs, pays (or allocates) costs.

    • Government – education, procurement, technical assistance.

Case studies

Case Studies

Do one of the case studies handed out, either alone or in a group. We will discuss the case studies after lunch.


Case study discussion questions

Case Study Discussion Questions

  • What strategies might work for your case study example?

  • How could you, in your current role (tech assistance provider, policy maker,NGO, within a businesses), support the case study example?

  • What barriers might you encounter and how might you overcome them?


What s happening now the united states picture

What’s happening now: The United States Picture

  • State Legislation and Programs

  • Federal Program

  • City and County Programs and Ordinances

  • Industry Initiatives

  • What can one jurisdiction do? Seattle Example


State programs and legislation

State Programs and Legislation

  • Mercury auto switches in Maine

    • $1 bounty from auto manufacturers to junkyards

  • PS legislation in Maine and Minnesota

  • CA placed a fee on all electronics at purchase (little manufacturer involvement)

  • OR and WA partnering to design a manufacturer funded take-back system for electronics through a third party organization.

    Federal Program

  • Wide variety ofprograms, products and activities that include: electronics, mercury, carpet, beverage containers, radioactive wastes, vehicles and batteries


Product stewardship

  • City and County Programs and Ordinances

    • The City of Los Angeles passed a local resolution requiringretailers to takeback electronic products. The resolution didn't come into force as a state law was passed.

    • Snohomish and King County along with the City of Seattle have created the Take It Back Network to support private sector options for dealing with end-of-life electronics. Partners include retail collection sites, processors, and manufacturers.

  • Industry Initiatives

  • Carpet America Recovery Effort (www.carpetrecovery.org/) is a

  • voluntary effort of the carpet industry.

  • Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (www.rbrc.org/) is a

  • well structured model with low recovery rates to date.

  • Cell Phone Recovery

  • Electronics (example to follow)

  • For a summary of other industry initiatives, see

What one jurisdiction can do city of seattle examples

What one Jurisdiction can doCity of Seattle Examples

  • Who are we:

    • Municipality that provides:

      • electricity, drinking water, storm water and sewer services, solid waste recycling and disposal services, street maintenance, parks and play facilities and community centers and libraries

    • We are the “manufacturer” of these products and as such, make choices that can positively or negatively impact the environment.

  • What can we do:

    • Green Purchasing

    • Supply Chain Management

    • Env. Sound Choices in what we “manufacturer

    • Green Building - LEEDs
