DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENT AND ENERGY (AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY)
Peter Brisbane manages the Australian Government’s policy and program delivery on waste, particularly through product stewardship.
This includes supporting industry-led voluntary product stewardship schemes, and managing regulatory schemes such as the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme, Product Stewardship for Oil and the Australian Packaging Covenant.
Peter’s priorities for the next twelve months include reviewing product stewardship legislation, running the second accreditation round for voluntary product stewardship schemes and supporting the development of new product stewardship schemes on high-priority products such as large energy storage batteries.
At Powering the change, Peter will share a national policy perspective – reflecting on successes and challenges of Australia’s product stewardship initiatives in electronics (including batteries), and discussing the roles of government, business and consumers in changing the status quo.
