GS19 – the full Product Stewardship standard can be viewed by clicking here
For BT, product stewardship is about making sure that the products we buy, use and sell are safe and have the lowest possible impact on the environment. This means minimising their impact when they are made, used and disposed of. It also ensures that our products and suppliers are complying with the latest environmental regulations and legislation as a minimum.
Product stewardship is not just good for the environment; it also cuts costs by reducing energy and resource use and landfill costs. This benefits BT, our suppliers and our customers.
More information about our approach to product stewardship, how we actively ‘reduce, reuse, and recycle’, and work with environmental legislation, please refer to our Better Future report.
A copy of the GS19 questionnaire can be found here.
The GS19 standard not only sets out the minimum product stewardship requirements expected from our suppliers but also the associated contract conditions.
