Product Stewardship Goes Mainstream Through Effective Leadership
As further proof that product stewardship and producer responsibility are making serious inroads into traditional waste management, recycling and resource issues, two product stewardship experts in Australia have made the cut for the top five nominees in the Resources & Waste category of the 2013 WME magazine Leaders List Awards. GlobalPSC President Russ Martin and Chief Sustainability Officer of Infoactiv John Gertsakis have worked for decades to advance product stewardship, so it’s great to see such recognition for their hard work.
Both Russ and John see the commercial and environmental value of effective product stewardship working across diverse product categories and industry sectors, from batteries and e-waste through to paint, commercial furniture and various other manufactured goods. Most importantly, they recognise that life cycle thinking and design innovation are essential elements in achieving a more coherent and sustainable approach to product stewardship.
