Since PSX debuted in 2014 as “The Product Stewardship Conference,” it has evolved from a small group of like-minded professionals to a premier event attracting product stewardship practitioners across multiple product uses and industries and throughout the value chain.
PSX 2022, being held at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, October 18–20, offers a unique chance for product stewardship professionals to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and best practices of everything from extended producer responsibility to proactive chemical risk management.
Because of the evolving nature of product stewardship, the education program focuses on both existing and emerging topics relevant to the product stewardship community. Over the course of three days, you can choose from multiple concurrent sessions per time block. Pre-conference workshops with hands-on demonstrations and group activities also are available for those who want to dig deeper into strengthening their programs.
“Product stewardship is, as we all know, a broad profession, and I’ve never worried about going to this conference and not being able to find discussions from the podium or in the hallways . . . that were right on point as to what was going on.” —Thomas Grumbles, CIH, CPPS, FAIHA, Chair, Board for Global EHS Credentialing
This year, you can look forward to a stellar keynote lineup with Fabien Cousteau, deep-ocean explorer and environmentally conscious business strategist, opening the conference (yes, he’s also the grandson of the legendary explorer Jacques Cousteau). Attendees also will be treated to insights from closing keynote speaker Joel Makower, Chairman and Executive Editor of GreenBiz Group, Inc., who has been referred to as “the guru of green business practices.”
PSX 2022 also is worth attending for the networking opportunities. The Exchange has long been the networking center of the event, offering attendees the chance to collaborate with fellow professionals and industry partners. In Louisville, the Exchange will transform into a full exhibit hall, with new and returning partners ready to showcase their most innovative products and services.
“The benefit of attending PSX is having access to a whole world of other professionals who do product stewardship for a living . . . commiserating on certain issues and sharing ideas and experiences that we’ve had to learn and grow.” —Sonia Razzaque, Vice President of Product Stewardship and Compliance, Michelman
