GlobalPSC Member Profile – AgStewardship Australia

Posted by GlobalPSC on Member Profiles at 5:45 pm, September 9th, 2011Comments1

The Global Product Stewardship Council will be profiling the members that make it possible for us to help facilitate the development of effective product stewardship approaches.

 

Our first member to be profiled is AgStewardship Australia, the first Sustaining Corporate member of the GlobalPSC.

AgStewardship Australia Limited develops and implements stewardship programs for Australia’s agricultural sector. It is a not-for-profit company, which brings together a partnership of organisations representing the supply chain, from chemical manufacturers to primary producers and local government. These partners share the common goal of managing safely agricultural chemicals and their containers, from manufacture to disposal. The organisation is responsible for overseeing the successful drumMUSTER® and ChemClear® programs, which have become benchmarks for voluntary product stewardship in Australia.

CEO Karen Gomez explained why AgStewardship Australia became a Sustaining Corporate member, “The Global Product Stewardship Council is a logical extension for AgStewardship Australia. Its knowledge network is a valuable opportunity to understand the advances and issues facing product stewardship from an international perspective. It provides AgStewardship a forum to share its insights and interact with leaders in the field, while contributing to fostering product stewardship.”
