Partnering with Your Suppliers for Hazardous Waste Reduction
Current waste disposal programs are focused on managing environmental compliance at product end-of-life. However, with this approach, retailers can miss potential opportunities to improve on sustainability goals, reduce hazardous waste and lower reverse logistics expenses.
Leading retailers are leveraging their supply chain data to reduce hazardous waste by working with their upstream supply chain partners to design out environmental risks earlier in the product life cycle. In this session, Ashley Bell, Senior Manager of Consumer Packaged Goods Segment at UL, along with hazardous waste subject matter expert Joe Donnelly of UL, review examples of retailers proactively removing hazardous waste elements in both chemical-containing products and batteries contained in consumer electronics.
