Product Stewardship

OVERVIEW

ANZRP capitalises on our expertise, capabilities and relationships to deliver sustainable end-of-product-management programs that provide the best environmental outcomes for all participants.

We are an authority in facilitating sound product stewardship management and sustainability strategies to meet the needs of industry, government and consumers.

As our global marketplace shifts focus to the circular economy, product stewardship will be fundamental in aligning the strategic and operational systems required for its implementation. ANZRP has deep experience in co-ordinating the development, delivery and engagement of these systems to drive efficient and effective program management. Our expert team understands the unique needs of stakeholders in the lifecycle of a product.

ANZRP was formed as a non-profit, industry for industry model in response to the compliance and sustainability objectives of the Product Stewardship Act 2011. We operate the TechCollect product stewardship program and are the market leader for the safe and responsible collection and recycling of e-waste in Australia.

ANZRP has built an enviable position as one of Australia’s principal product stewardship organisations, protecting the brand reputations of our funding partners by delivering best practice program management, governance and thought leadership.

A key advocate in the product stewardship and sustainability sector, we are uniquely positioned to engage with diverse stakeholders including other product stewardship organisations, government, environmental, business and consumer groups.

We have a comprehensive knowledge of the legislative landscape and the compliance requirements under the Product Stewardship Act 2011. This knowledge, coupled with our experienced team and operational capabilities, enables ANZRP to meet product stewardship needs, while assisting industry and government in planning for future product lifecycle trends.
