One group that is part of FPA’s wider collaborative effort is the Coalition for Sustainable Materials Management (CSMM). Its focus is to increase recycling and recovery of materials via alternatives to Product Stewardship, also known as Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). CSMM’s goal is to use proactive engagements and education programs to reach policymakers, regulators, recyclers and local officials.

Beyond FPA, other members of the coalition are:

  • American Chemistry Council
  • American Forest and Paper Assn.
  • Foodservice Packaging Institute
  • Glass packaging Institute
  • Waste Management
  • Grocery Manufacturers Assn.
  • Can Manufacturers Institute
  • National Waste & Recycling Assn.
