Garth Hickle, from the University of Minnesota, will speak on Tuesday, April 12th at 12:00PM EDT. His talk on the history of extended producer responsibility in the United States is organized by the Industrial Environmental Management (IEM) Program of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.

The talk is the fourth of a special 2011/2012 IEM Speaker Series sponsored by Nestle Waters North America. In its 21st year, the IEM Lecture Series brings speakers from companies and organizations to the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies to discuss the relationship between business and the environment. This year's lecture series, PRODUCERS, PACKAGING AND PUBLIC POLICY, explores the topic of extended producer responsibility (EPR) and packaging. Nestle Waters, an industry leader in exploring EPR issues, is the primary sponsor of this special lecture series. The goal of the lecture series is to explore the advantages and disadvantages of the application of EPR to packaging waste and municipal solid waste more generally in the U.S. For more information on our lecture series, visit cie.research.yale.edu/lecture-series/2011-epr-lecture-series.html
