Guiding industry to excellence
The Product Stewardship Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable trust established in 2008. It is a platform from which to support best practice industry-led and government-supported approaches to regulated product stewardship – a “co-design” model.
We focus on products which have been declared “priority products” under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008, assisting those sectors which need to navigate the complex requirements of regulated product stewardship.
The Foundation is a proven platform that provides a ‘safe space’ for sector-wide collaboration.
