Scott Cassel
Chief Executive Officer/Founder at Product Stewardship Institute, Inc.


A renowned leader in the U.S. product stewardship movement, Scott Cassel has over 35 years of experience tackling waste management issues in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. He is the founder and CEO of the Product Stewardship Institute (PSI), which brings diverse stakeholders together to research, develop, and implement extended producer responsibility laws. Prior to founding PSI, he served as the director of waste policy and planning for the Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs, where he developed and implemented solid and hazardous waste management policies and programs. Scott has experience with more than 20 product categories, including packaging, electronics, lamps, thermostats, pharmaceuticals, mattresses, and paint. He has been actively involved in the recent development of multiple state and federal packaging EPR bills. As PSI’s CEO, he developed the widely acclaimed facilitation process that the organization uses for stakeholder engagement and consensus-building—a process that resulted in the first industry-run, government-mandated paint stewardship program.
