It’s now just over a month until our International Stewardship Forum in Paris.
Register today to reserve your place with hundreds of key decision-makers, including international experts in extended producer responsibility (EPR), circular economy, product stewardship, sustainability and recycling from at least 17 countries.
The GlobalPSC and DASTRI, the French producer responsibility organisation (PRO) for sharps, are pleased to bring you the Paris Forum with the support of the French Ministry for Health, French Ministry for Environment and a diverse range of sponsors representing key stakeholders and product types. Details are available here.
In mid-May, GlobalPSC CEO Russ Martin participated as an advisor to the Drink Without Waste initiative and stakeholder workshop, which was arranged to determine the appropriate institutional and legal framework for an EPR scheme for beverage containers in Hong Kong.
The workshop included beverage producers and importers, waste handlers and recyclers, retailers, NGOs, large local institutions, and government. Russ also participated in discussions with senior government officials regarding relevant international experience on product stewardship and EPR.
Great to see the collaboration around the tables, and the constructive approaches used. #DrinkWithoutWaste
