Both Jon and I welcome you to the Sustainability Consortium website. The journey we have embarked upon is daunting but the rewards will be tremendous. Today industry, governments, and consumers lack the scientific foundation to quantify and report on the sustainability of consumer products. We all play a key role in reducing the impacts resulting from how we manufacture, sell, use, and dispose of products. The leading academics who we are fortunate to be partnering with around the globe are all dedicated to developing Sustainability Measurement and Reporting Standards (SMRS) based on strong science and engineering in a transparent manner.
During this journey we will be keeping you posted in a very candid manner on our successes, stumbles, and ideas as we move forward. We look forward to your thoughts and thank you for your interest in our efforts.
