Global Product Stewardship Challenges, Compliance and Risks: PFAS, Merger and Acquisition Due Diligence, and Beyond

Feb 13 9am PT/12pm ET
Speakers: Salvatore Giolando, PhD and Thomas Brunshidle

Global Product Stewardship (GPS) is a product-centered approach to environmental protection which calls on those in the product life cycle — manufacturers, retailers, users, and disposers — to share responsibility for reducing the environmental impacts of products. In addition to focusing on chemical and product safety and sustainability, GPS prioritizes compliance with applicable current and emerging regulations. For decades, global chemical control and downstream product regulations, bans, restrictions, and reporting obligations have proliferated, creating major challenges for multinational corporations. This has been further complicated by increased attention to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and other emerging contaminants of concern. These GPS challenges represent a barrier to innovation and a source of high-stake risks for corporations and their investors who are engaging in business transactions, developing and commercializing technologies, dealing with litigation matters, or entering new markets on aggressive timelines.
