What is Product Stewardship?

Product Stewardship refers to the industry’s Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) management

It takes it beyond factory’s gates, in cooperation with suppliers, transporters and retailers. In many respects, it is about putting into place responsible business management processes across a product's lifecycle.

IFA's 12 SHE Principles

All IFA Members have adopted the 12 IFA Safety, Health and Environment Principles, which commits them, among others, to “establish and improve their safety, security, health and environmental performance through annual objectives, targets or key performance indicators”.
