The Organization: Who We Are

WHO IS NSAC?

The National Stewardship Action Council (NSAC) is a network of committed proponents comprised of governments, non-government organizations, businesses, and consumers who advocate that producers fairly share responsibility in a circular economy.

NSAC supports Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) to conserve resources, reduce costs to local governments, create jobs in remanufacturing, and provide a circular economy. NSAC’s goal is to align public and private sectors through information and partnerships to implement and ensure sustainable recovery systems where producers have an appropriate level of sharing in the responsibility for those systems.

 

THE BIRTH OF NSAC

NSAC was founded in 2015 as an affiliate of the California Product Stewardship Council (CPSC). CPSC, which is a 501(c)(3) environmental education and protection organization under IRS rules, may only conduct limited legislative lobbying activities. With CPSC’s recent legislative successes in California have come increasing demands from across the country for CPSC’s assistance, creating the need for an entity that can carry CPSC’s work forward without lobbying limits, and on a national scale. In contrast to CPSC, NSAC is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization that will engage primarily in lobbying and advocacy work for EPR and Product Stewardship, anywhere in the U.S. and at any level of government interested in EPR legislation. NSAC will also be able to become involved in elections for public office, should such activities be needed to further its mission.

MISSION

Collaborate with public and private stakeholders to advance product stewardship and extended producer responsibility.

VISION

The United States attains a circular economy.
