In July 2021, the Product Stewardship Society Board of Directors approved our new strategic plan for 2022–2026. Some elements of the previous strategic plan are still very much relevant and carry forward, while other elements have been revised and strengthened. New elements have also been added to reflect the ever-changing role of product stewardship and the growing needs of product stewards.
The mission statement, which conveys the Society’s reason for being, has been updated to strengthen our purpose. The vision statement communicates the Society’s aspirations and is meant to convey a future-perfect state of being. The vision statement has been enhanced as well.
