This free webinar is hosted by the California Product Stewardship Council (CPSC), a nonprofit working on end-of-life issues for hard-to-manage products. The primary focus of this webinar is to help attendees to better understand the stewardship spectrum, spanning from extended producer responsibility to product stewardship. CPSC will share examples of successful (and less successful) examples of programs across the spectrum and provide time for Q&A. The webinar is expected to last approximately 1.5 to 2.0 hours.

EPR & the Stewardship Spectrum

    What is extended producer responsibility (EPR)?

    Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), also known as Product Stewardship, is a strategy to place a shared responsibility for end-of-life product management on the producers, and all entities involved in the product chain, instead of the general public; while encouraging product design changes that minimize a negative impact on human health and the environment at every stage of the product's lifecycle. This allows the costs of treatment and disposal to be incorporated into the total cost of a product. It places primary responsibility on the producer, or brand owner, who makes design and marketing decisions. It also creates a setting for markets to emerge that truly reflect the environmental impacts of a product, and to which producers and consumers respond.
