Preliminary Program Now Available

 

The Global Product Stewardship Council, supported by the Australian Government Department of the Environment and Energy, is staging an international forum on product stewardship to gain practical insights from product stewardship and extended producer responsibility programs across a broad range of products and substances.

The forum will help inform the Australian Government’s review of the Product Stewardship Act 2011 (Act) and comprise two days of presentations, panel discussions and Q&A on 4-5 April 2018 in Sydney featuring key international and Australian speakers, followed by one day of exclusive invitation-only modified Chatham House discussions.

Confirmed international speakers include:

We’ve also secured a strong contingent of Australian speakers. See the Preliminary Program, available here, for details.

 

 Sponsorship Opportunities Still Available

The forum is designed to maximise engagement with stakeholders, both to broaden input to the review and to encourage greater involvement in product stewardship. Product stewardship approaches across the spectrum from purely voluntary approaches to regulatory frameworks will be considered. Presentations and discussions will be reflected in an Issues and Options Paper to help capture the extensive international expertise available.

The main venue for the forum is the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel at Circular Quay in Sydney, Australia.

 

REGISTER HERE

 

Registration covers participation in both days of the forum and a networking event the evening of 4 April.

An Early Bird rate of A$750 (ex-GST and ticket fees) is available for all registrations up to 16 February 2018. This rate is also available to confirmed forum speakers and to confirmed GlobalPSC members and OEH Sustainability Advantage partners. Full registrations are A$950 (ex-GST and ticket fees).
