Russ Martin, CEO of the Global Product Stewardship Council (GlobalPSC) has been appointed independent chair of the Battery Implementation Working Group, which will consider options for a national battery stewardship program for handheld batteries. This follows the identification of handheld batteries as ‘priority products’ potentially covered under Australia’s Product Stewardship Act.
GlobalPSC is an incorporated association that aims to provide:
– an independent forum for product stewardship development
– a web-based clearinghouse for the dissemination of information and research on product stewardship
– international linkages to advance product stewardship
– research on product stewardship.
Russ Martin recently prepared a report on the Public Policy and Business Case for Battery Stewardship for Sustainability Victoria.
