The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) advises that Dr Helen Lewis, who is a Fellow of the Institute, has written a new book 'Product Stewardship in Action: The Business Case for Lifecycle', which is now available in the AIP Bookstore for purchase.
'Product Stewardship in Action' describes how and why leading companies are taking responsibility for the environmental impact of their products and packaging. Product stewardship, often referred to as ‘extended producer responsibility’ or EPR, is the idea that everyone that benefits commercially from a product, including manufacturers, distributors and retailers, has a shared responsibility to minimise its environmental impacts.
Written primarily for a business audience, it draws on the knowledge and experience of industry practitioners and other experts to provide a structured approach to product responsibility within firms. This will help those new to the field, as well as more experienced practitioners, to develop an effective response to stakeholder concerns about the environmental impacts of their products and packaging.Click here to order your copy
