Trends in Product Sustainability and Circularity — A Conversation with Kate Sellers
This week I had the pleasure of sitting down again with one of my favorite people on planet Earth, Kate Sellers, Technical Fellow at ERM, where Kate leads a multidisciplinary team of professionals dedicated to helping companies recognize the business value of product stewardship. Kate is also an adjunct professor at Harvard Extension School and Indiana University’s School of Public Health, where she is an instructor in the Master of Science in Product Stewardship program. Kate and I last spoke on the podcast in December 2020, when we vowed to speak again in about a year.
Over the past year, Kate has seen an uptick in several product sustainability trends, including implementation of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), life-cycle assessment, circular economy programs, and sustainability initiatives. We discuss all of these trends and more in our conversation.
