2015 U.S. Product Stewardship Forum: Extended Producer Responsibility and the Circular Economy

Posted by GlobalPSC at 8:54 pm, November 16th, 2015Comments2

On December 8 & 9, the Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) will host environmental sustainability experts from around the world at a conference in Boston to celebrate and assess 15 years of EPR in the U.S.; discuss national and global trends in product stewardship, zero waste, recycling, and the circular economy; and examine future challenges and opportunities for increasing recovery of materials in consumer products. This interactive, discussion-based event is an excellent way to join national and international conversations about the evolving ideas and concepts that shape the work we share.

The conference agenda features world-class speakers that will discuss key issues in product stewardship, the role of regulation in a circular economy, and best practices and key strategies for implementing successful EPR programs. Join us there for a new perspective on how we think about and manage “waste”. Register for the conference here and reserve your hotel room here.

Dell was founded in 1984 by Michael Dell from his dorm room at the University of Texas in Austin, and today he is the longest-tenured executive to lead a company in the computer industry. Dell is a premier provider of products and services worldwide that enable customers to build their information technology and Internet infrastructures. Dell offers a broad range of products in the following categories: desktop computer systems, servers and networking products, mobility products, software and peripherals and services.

Dell Inc. is currently headquartered in Round Rock, Texas, United States of America. Dell Inc. operates worldwide and its subsidiaries develop, design, manufacture, market and sell computers and services, software and peripherals to customers worldwide. The company sells its technology to a variety of customers – consumers, public customers, large enterprises and small- and medium-sized businesses. In 2014, Dell launched a new closed-loop process where plastics for new product manufacturing are sourced by waste electronics collected from customers. By keeping the plastics within the ‘closed-loop,’ Dell puts them back to work, fueling the circular economy for IT. By doing this Dell helps to drive a “circular economy”.

Dell was honored with the 2015 Accenture Award for “Circular Economy Pioneer” at the Circular Awards during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The award recognizes established organizations demonstrating existing business innovation that supports a circular economy, which aims to decouple economic growth from the use of natural resources and ecosystems by using resources more effectively.
