It’s not just about recycling bottles and batteries anymore. This council provides members a forum to exchange ideas and best practices on how to lead companies through the evolving landscape of regulatory compliance and product responsibility. Topics discussed include:
- Product risk management
- Regulatory advocacy
- Process development
- Value chain partnering
- Societal engagement
- Talent management
