ERM & Product Stewardship

The focus on product stewardship has intensified over recent years, due in large part to demand from consumers for greater supply chain transparency and safer, ‘greener’ products. Purchasers, consumers, regulators, and investors are increasingly focused on how and where products are sourced, developed, manufactured, distributed, used, and disposed, along with a product’s overall impacts at each life cycle stage. This focus on product stewardship has also been driven by the growing array of environmental, health, safety and, sustainability (EHSS) regulations.

ERM’s approach to product stewardship not only seeks ways to avoid product impoundment or recall, which can disrupt supply chains, increase costs and damage brand and reputation. It also aims to identify and mitigate these risks while looking beyond them to assess key product and brand differentiators that have the potential to drive innovation, and contribute to the bottom line.
