Product Stewardship Program

You can go beyond regulatory compliance by proactively developing and selecting safer and sustainable materials, products and suppliers.

A sunset with trees

Overview

Product stewardship programs aim to minimize the negative environmental, health, chemical safety and social impacts of a product throughout its life cycle. Proactive companies that incorporate sustainability principles within product design, product sourcing and supplier selection processes can support growth and protect their vital brand reputation.

The demand for safer and greener formulated products drives product stewardship initiatives. Further, a convergence of regulatory, nongovernmental organization (NGO) and consumer pressures have put a spotlight on how companies manage chemicals and hazardous substances in their products and supply chains.

We understand the subsequent challenges for companies and provide help to establish and manage robust product stewardship programs. Our solutions empower you to improve your company’s sustainability benchmarks, produce safer products with decreased chemical hazards, and connect your supply chain to help ensure the adoption of your defined requirements.
