New book examines product stewardship in action


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.

A new book available from the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) examines how and why leading companies are taking responsibility for the environmental impact of their products and packaging.

Written by Dr Helen Lewis, who is a Fellow of the AIP, Product Stewardship in Action: The Business Case for Lifecycle, draws on the knowledge and experience of industry practitioners and other experts to provide a structured approach to product responsibility within firms. The book assists 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.

The book is now available from the AIP Bookstore.
