StewardChoice Releases Draft Stewardship Plan for British Columbia

Posted by GlobalPSC at 4:42 pm, June 30th, 2014Comments1

 

 

 

StewardChoice Enterprises Inc. (a subsidiary of GlobalPSC Corporate Member Reclay StewardEdge) has released its draft stewardship plan for packaging and printed paper in British Columbia.

The competitive draft stewardship plan will offer producers an opportunity to fulfill their legal obligations, under the BC Recycling Regulation, to recover at least 75% of their packaging and printed paper in the marketplace.

“We intend to provide producer-funded collection and recycling to those residents who are currently not being serviced; particularly to those living in multifamily dwellings,” says Neil Hastie, Development Director  for StewardChoice Enterprises Inc. and GlobalPSC President. “Today, more than 20% of these BC households do not receive a producer-funded recycling service.”

The draft plan will undergo public consultations in the coming months, then be submitted for approval to the BC Ministry of Environment. New recycling services will commence, initially in multi-family residential buildings, once approved.

StewardChoice Enterprises Announces Draft Stewardship Plan

StewardChoice Enterprises Inc. (a subsidiary of GlobalPSC Corporate Member Reclay StewardEdge) has announced from the Recycling Council of British Columbia’s annual Zero Waste Conference that it will publish a draft stewardship plan for packaging and printed paper in British Columbia this June.

The draft plan will undergo public consultations in the coming months, then be submitted for approval to the BC Ministry of Environment. New recycling services will commence, initially in multi-family residential buildings, once approved.

“We see this as an opportunity to provide producers with more choice while offering cost-effective solutions,” says Neil Hastie, Development Director  for StewardChoice Enterprises Inc. and GlobalPSC President. “We strongly believe that producers should have the ability to choose a preferred service when determining how to meet their regulatory obligations.”

More than 20% of multi-family buildings in British Columbia do not currently receive a producer funded recycling service.

Neil Hastie Retires from Encorp Pacific (Canada) and Assumes Greater Responsibility with the GlobalPSC

Neil Hastie is retiring from his role as President and CEO of Encorp Pacific (Canada) on 31 July. This will enable Neil to devote even more time to serving as GlobalPSC President.

Neil has over 15 years’ experience running extended producer responsibility (EPR) programs in British Columbia, Canada. Prior to joining Encorp Pacific in 1998, Neil had been a senior executive in the retail industry for more than 30 years.

One of Neil’s long-term colleagues, Malcolm Harvey, reflected on some of the factors for Neil’s success and his value to the GlobalPSC,

“Neil is a very disarming fellow. His approachable and modest attitude belies the fact that behind it lies an incisive and decisive intellect. His concern for others is genuine and he is unlikely to be swayed by emotion alone; he is, fundamentally, a pragmatist. One reason I think he has been successful at Encorp is his belief that the core need is to identify the high ground in any debate and never, ever be pushed or step down from it.” 

“Neil was one of the first senior executives to discover that product stewardship was one of the few places where business practices and experience could be successfully partnered with a truly beneficial objective. The transition from the business of selling chocolates to that of collecting bottles and cans could have been a wrenching one but it was a change he made in a heartbeat. I think he simply found his calling. That he will continue to be involved in product stewardship in various forms only confirms that for me.”

GlobalPSC CEO Russ Martin stated,

“Neil has carved out a strong reputation in North America and beyond, which is part of why we asked him to join the GlobalPSC board and more recently to become President. He’s earned a great deal of respect and admiration over the years. We’re looking forward to Neil having even more time for the GlobalPSC, when he’s not with his family or on a golf course, that is.”

GlobalPSC Appoints Russ Martin as CEO and Neil Hastie as President

Whistler, British Columbia – The Global Product Stewardship Council (GlobalPSC) has appointed Russ Martin as Chief Executive Officer of the organisation. During the opening session of the Recycling Council of British Columbia’s Zero Waste Conference, Russ also announced Neil Hastie as the new President.

Russ has over 20 years experience in product stewardship, public policy and sustainability in the US, Australia and Middle East. This includes roles in government and as an advisor to governments and industry. He is Director of consultancy MS2 and is a GlobalPSC founder in addition to serving as President for the first three years of the GlobalPSC’s existence.

We’ve grown the GlobalPSC to over 40 members in 11 countries and put in place a variety of resources to add value to our members, in addition to influencing development of product stewardship across a range of products. I’m pleased to have this opportunity to continue building the GlobalPSC and expanding our network to best learn from the lessons of product stewardship and producer responsibility programs internationally. Neil has been integral to our efforts and his experience with running a leading recovery program is invaluable.” Russ said.

Neil is President and CEO of Encorp Pacific (Canada) with over 15 years experience running extended producer responsibility (EPR) programs in British Columbia, Canada. He previously held a variety of general management positions in retailers across the country.

There is an increasing commitment to corporate sustainability for organizations based in North America and operating globally. Producer responsibility can be one of the pillars in a successful sustainability strategy. Evaluating and tracking national and global trends in the performance and costs for voluntary, co-regulatory and regulated systems is an imperative for robust enterprise risk management. The GlobalPSC assists its members in this analysis. I am enthused by the opportunity to intensify my contribution to the Council and to assist in enhancing value for our current and increasing base of business, government and NGO members.” said Neil.

Product Stewardship Goes Mainstream Through Effective Leadership

As further proof that product stewardship and producer responsibility are making serious inroads into traditional waste management, recycling and resource issues, two product stewardship experts in Australia have made the cut for the top five nominees in the Resources & Waste category of the 2013 WME magazine Leaders List Awards. GlobalPSC President Russ Martin and Chief Sustainability Officer of Infoactiv John Gertsakis have worked for decades to advance product stewardship, so it’s great to see such recognition for their hard work.

Both Russ and John see the commercial and environmental value of effective product stewardship working across diverse product categories and industry sectors, from batteries and e-waste through to paint, commercial furniture and various other manufactured goods. Most importantly, they recognise that life cycle thinking and design innovation are essential elements in achieving a more coherent and sustainable approach to product stewardship.
