Environmental stewardship

Environmental stewardship addresses the proper use and disposal of products. Marine stewardship for the food-processing sector addresses responsible fish-harvesting practices, and forest stewardship for the pulp and paper sector promotes sustainable forestry. A landmark stewardship initiative is extended product responsibility (EPR). Important features of EPR include structuring production processes so that one industry’s waste can be used by another and designing products that avoid the use of hazardous materials so that they can easily be remanufactured or the materials in them recovered.
