For businesses navigating complex product and packaging lifecycles, managing environmental sustainability, health, and safety efforts can be a challenge.

Stimulate growth and reduce impacts along the product lifecycle.

Product stewardship is the act of minimizing the health, safety, environmental, and social impacts of a product and its packaging throughout the entire lifecycle. The strategic integration of global product stewardship and regulatory affairs programs into standard operating procedures can assist your business in accelerating global growth, reducing risks, and enhancing reputation.

Exponent's multidisciplinary product stewardship specialists have the technical, regulatory, and professional experience you need to address complex, day-to-day product stewardship challenges, enabling your business to take a proactive approach to impact reduction and improving environmental sustainability.

Effective product stewardship principles are important for current and emerging regulatory standards in global commerce, including the EU REACH chemical registration program, the UN's Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), and the World Health Organization's harmonization standards for Chemical Risk Assessment. Additionally, there is increasing awareness among end-users regarding chemical selection and use in consumer products, as evidenced by the marketing of green chemicals (sustainable chemistry), sustainable and environmentally friendly products, and high-profile incidents involving consumer products safety.
