9 Derek Stephenson Revising the Governance Structure Slide 9

10 Presentation Overview Review current Board of Directors What current BBPP includes Steward registration update Issues to consider Options for discussion only Next steps Slide 10

11 Board of Directors Food & consumer products manufacturers Non-alcoholic beverage manufacturers Grocery distributors General merchandise retailers Newspaper publishers Paint manufacturers & consumer & chemical product manufacturers Retailer of alcoholic beverages Stewardship Ontario CEO Slide 11

12 Future Governance Model Approved BBPP states that the founding Board would expand to: up to 20 seats up to 7 additional sectors Number of industry sectors will be determined when total members & proportion of total annual fees contributed by each sector is known Slide 12

13 Future Governance Model Additional sectors may include: Electronic & electrical products Toys & sporting goods Non-prescription pharmaceuticals Quick service food Importers Distributors Hardware & automotive Slide 13

14 Initial Criteria for Eligibility Generate designated Blue Box wastes Other companies with commercial connections to Blue Box wastes Other persons with an interest in corporation’s activities As agreed by Stewardship Ontario’s Board of Directors Slide 14

15 Additional Considerations for Board of Directors Configuration & voting representation would consider financial contributions of each sector to Stewardship Ontario Board decisions will require majority vote & approval of minimum number of sectors Stewardship Ontario will review size & composition of Board annually Slide 15

16 Registration Status Report 1384 registered Stewards 443 registrants have not yet filed reports 2,000 (estimated) additional potential Stewards identified & not yet registered 350 registered Stewards; represent 97% of reported levies owing 591 other registered Stewards account for remaining 3% of fees to date Current to July 8, 2004 Slide 16

17 Financial Contribution by Sector Slide 17

18 Some Issues to be Considered 1. Is Board representation by sector appropriate? 2.Are membership criteria correct? 3.Restructure only when full membership composition known? 4. Review annually or less often? Slide 18

19 Today’s Discussion Three possible options: 1.Maintain current sectoral representation 2.Expand Board to between 12 & 15 members, including Non-Stewards 3.Expand Board to 20 members, including Non-Stewards Slide 19

20 Please Note Options are for discussion only Options not reviewed by Stewardship Ontario Governance Committee or Board Comments on other alternatives welcome Slide 20

21 Option 1 Continue with current Board composition with voting rights tied to financial contribution Slide 21

22 Option 1 (cont’d) Maintain current Board sectors with voting rights allocated on reported financial contributions Representation from other stakeholders (material suppliers, NGO) could be considered (non-voting) Slide 22

23 Option 1 Analysis PROS: –Voting reflects financial contribution –Easy transition from current Board CONS: –‘Strong get stronger’ –Not seen as ‘inclusive’ –No direct representation from other key stakeholders –Major generators of Blue Box materials (i.e., newspapers) get relatively small representation –Sectors on current Board represent approximately 91% of fees contributed and 88% of tonnes reported Slide 23

24 Option 2 Increase Board of Directors to between 12 &15 seats Slide 24

25 Option 2 (cont’d) Add sectors to existing Board & add non- steward representation: –3 to 5 more contributing sectors (based on financial contribution) –1 to 2 AMO or NGO Slide 25

26 Option 2 Analysis PROS: –Wider steward representation –Greater transparency by including Non-Stewards –Introduces ‘fresh blood’ CONS: –Voting may not fully represent financial contribution –Increased size may encumber decision making –Some obligated industry sectors may not feel represented Slide 26

27 Option 3 Increase Board seats to 20 Slide 27

28 Option 3 (cont’d) Allocate 70% of Board (14 seats) on basis of payments in, with: –20% (4 seats) to material suppliers –10% (2 seats) to AMO/NGO Slide 28

29 Option 3 Analysis PROS: –Protects relationship to payment in –Includes material suppliers & other stakeholders –Greater transparency & political comfort CONS: –Not purely ‘pay as you play’ –Some stakeholders oppose key elements of BBPP –Increased size, strategic differences complicate decision making Slide 29

30 Next Steps – Summer 2004 July 23 – Post draft report on comments received today & preliminary recommendations Aug. 6 – Closing date for comments on draft report Week of Aug. 15 – Stewardship Ontario Governance Committee to review draft report; post preferred option(s) Aug. 25 – Webcast & public consultation on options Slide 30

31 Next Steps – Fall 2004 & Beyond Early September – Governance Committee to review comments; recommendations to Stewardship Ontario Board of Directors September/October – Recommendations to WDO Board of Directors Selected governance model takes effect by next Annual General Meeting (June 2005) Slide 31

32 Your comments, please! Slide 32

33 Geoff Love Market Development Slide 33

34 Overview of Market Development 1.Approved BBPP on market development 2.Market development progress; where we are relative to BBPP targets 3.Your thoughts on how to proceed on market development Slide 34

35 Market Development & Targets The program will: Include targets for overall quantity of Blue Box waste to be diverted …, & material specific targets for Blue Box waste to be captured …; Include a plan, with funding provisions, outlining activities to develop & promote products that result … From Minister of Environment’s September 2002 request for Blue Box Waste Diversion Program Slide 35

36 BBPP Market Development Three core elements in market development strategy in approved BBPP: 1.Public-private Green Procurement initiative 2.Targeted Market Development Investment program for recycled glass 3. Market Development Plans for others as needed to meet targets Slide 36

37 Market Development Goals 1.Support developing capacity to use all recovered Blue Box materials. 2.Promote enhancement of recovered material value. 3.Enhance material recovery to meet targets (where markets are the barrier). 4.Reduce overall Blue Box Program costs. Slide 37

38 Market Development Principles Guiding principles: 1.Stewardship Ontario to invest in market development in partnership with others. 2.Stewardship Ontario’s investments to be linked to material specific targets; –support end markets for targeted tonnes at next least cost. Slide 38

39 Principles (con’t) 3.Avoid cross-subsidizing material-specific market development. 4.Implement a Request for Proposal/ competitive bid process to allocate market development funds. Slide 39

40 Glass Market Development Investment Program 1.Implementation Projects: longer term –Up to $2 M (from glass Stewards) for 2004/05 –REOI posted on website (7 responses) –MacViro retained to review & evaluate REOIs –Initiating meetings with GTA municipalities, re: mixed glass tonnes –Detailed RFP for qualified applicants (fall/winter) Slide 40

41 Glass (con’t) 2.Glass Business Planning/Feasibility Study: nearer term –$500K business planning & feasibility study fund to support projects up to $25K (matching funding basis) –ReMM retained to help develop funding guidelines & identify priority projects (increased tonnes and/or reduced costs) –Plan to post guidelines - late July; first project funds expected in fall 2004 Slide 41

42 Green Procurement Update Program Goal: demand pull for Blue Box materials (reduce costs) Initial design considerations (from BBPP): –Voluntary; not labeling driven –Public-private joint initiative; not to re-invent wheel –Results driven –Consider codes/best practice promotion approach Slide 42

43 Green Procurement Update (con’t) “Visioning” workshop: June 22 –4 expert speakers –Technical exchange with London Remade, re: lessons learned from Green Procurement program –Workshop report on website (July 19) Green Procurement Business Plan to Stewardship Ontario Board, mid September Slide 43

44 Market Development: Others Market development investments tied to material specific targets (5 year program) WDO’s Cost Effectiveness Committee report recommended considering future market development activities (not yet approved) Slide 44

45 WDO’s Cost Effectiveness Committee Considerations 1.Prepare/adopt green procurement protocols 2.Assess additional market development levies to support low revenue materials 3.Analyze alternative glass markets/ investigate glass colour sorting technologies 4.Investigate including composite cans/ expand polycoat materials Slide 45

46 Cost Effectiveness Considerations (cont’d) 5.Start cost & quality analysis; single stream recycling 6.Assess impact of increasing recovery of “other household papers” on paper markets 7.Investigate cooperative marketing service 8.Implement mixed plastic & plastic film RFQs Slide 46

52 Some issues to consider… Slide 52

53 Market Development Required? Are additional market development initiatives required to meet material specific recycling targets & to improve material revenues? Considering: –increases in recovery required (5% per year) –recent increases in recovery –current & projected market capacity –trends in management, e.g., greater commingling Slide 53

54 If additional Market Development … What Strategies? Green procurement? Cooperative marketing? What materials are a priority & what are the next steps? –Plastics? Focus on all bottles only or include other plastic packaging? –Other paper? –Glass - are current initiatives enough? –Metals? Slide 54
