"EPS is a problem we can no longer ignore. It’s a HUGE problem that requires us to come together to find the answer. Impending bans around the world are causing significant risk to businesses, which is compounded by poor customer experience and disastrous impact on our planet. Now is the time to act, but we can't do it alone. The world-class team we've assembled, powered by the Consortium, gives us all the best chance at solving the EPS problem."
