Mission

To promote the use of plant-based products.

Goals

The Plant Based Products Council strives to guide the evolving global economy toward more sustainable and responsible consumer products and packaging. We aspire to deliver a future based on renewable goods, improving global resource efficiency to meet the challenges of the 21st century through reductions in greenhouse gas emissions as well as municipal waste. Our organization seeks to:

  • Enhance public awareness of the vast economic, environmental, and social benefits of plant-based products.
  • Encourage collaboration between business, government, and non-profits to incorporate principles of a circular bioeconomy into consumer products and industrials.
  • Advocate for policy that encourages the transition to renewable products.
  • Provide a platform for stakeholders throughout the plant-based product value chain to connect and collaborate.

Staff

In addition to leading PBPC, Jessica also serves as the Corn Refiners Association’s (CRA) Vice President of Advanced Bioproducts, overseeing and executing legislative and regulatory priorities for policies related to advanced bioproducts.
