2009 Strategic Directives
SD-5: Producer Responsibility
This page provides information on the CIWMB's Strategic Directive 5 (SD-5). The baseline measurement, metrics or performance criteria, annual targets, and key activities for each subdirective are being developed and will be posted on this page in November 2009.
It is a core value of the CIWMB that producers assume the responsibility for the safe stewardship of their materials in order to promote environmental sustainability.
Specifically, the CIWMB will:
- 5.1--Utilize existing Board authority to foster "cradle-to-cradle" producer responsibility.
- 5.2--Seek statutory authority to implement the Extended Producer Responsibility Framework adopted by the Board in January 2008.
- 5.3--Develop and maintain relationships with stakeholders, including the public and other interested parties, that result in producer-financed and producer-managed systems for product discards.
