Professional Practices of Product Stewardship

​Coming in January 2018

Product Stewardship is an evolving and expanding area of concern and opportunity to companies and society.  There are an ever-increasing number of individuals with “Product Stewardship” in their title and responsibilities within the organizations they support.  But, to this point in time, there has not been a concise reference of professional practices for this highly important responsibility in maintaining an organization’s “license to operate” with the public.

This book is intended to offer guidance, insight, and support to both those new to Product Stewardship and those who have been involved for a number of years.
