The Product Sustainability Round Table (PSRT) - PDF Guide

07 October 2016

In a world where time is money, there’s priceless value in being part of a global community of sustainability leaders.

The PSRT is a community of cross-industry sustainability experts and thought leaders from leading global companies that has been operating for over 25 years.

The PSRT approach

PSRT members meet virtually and take turns hosting face-to-face meetings across North America and Europe to enable dynamic benchmarking and expert insights from member companies, external speakers and Anthesis advisors. Members work together to:

  1. track and deepen their understanding of emerging sustainability trends and issues, and identify thought leadership resources;
  2. openly share collective experiences, successes and failures;
  3. understand how others are realizing business value by mainstreaming sustainability; and
  4. collaborate on best practices, tools, and solutions.

With more cross-value chain and cross industry communication and knowledge sharing than can be afforded by other industry groups, members are able to quickly understand new developments and value chain perspectives, learn from leading companies and shorten their learning curves, and forge stronger relationships with value chain partners. In addition, by engaging with a network of aligned companies, the PSRT provides much greater value than any standalone strategy or benchmarking engagement can provide.

Sustainability topics covered by the PSRT in 2017:

  • Political Climate: from Globalization to Localization
  • Ambitious & Meaningful Target Setting: SBTs

PSRT members are a global group of companies with a vision to drive continuous improvement and connect product sustainability priorities to market value. Relationships which begin at PSRT meetings often forge into long-term partnerships. 

Full PSRT membership costs US $14,000 per organization per calendar year.
