With the start of the fall semester, the Industrial Environmental Program at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies is pleased to announce the second half of 2011 lecture series, PRODUCERS, PACKAGING & PUBLIC POLICY.

The lecture series explores the topic of extended producer responsibility (EPR) and packaging.  Nestle Waters, an industry leader in exploring EPR issues, is the primary sponsor of this special lecture series.  The goal of the lecture series is to explore the advantages and disadvantages of the application of EPR to packaging waste and municipal solid waste more generally in the U.S. For more information on Yale’s lecture series, including recordings of previous lectures in the series, visit http://cie.research.yale.edu/lecture-series/2011-epr-lecture-series.html

In its 21st year, the IEM Lecture Series brings speakers from companies and organizations to the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies to discuss the relationship between business and the environment.
