Improving Chemical Management: Understanding Lifecycle Chemical Costs and New Models for Success

CSP has been contracted by the EPA’s National Partnership for Environmental Priorities (NPEP) this fall to launch a new onli ne training to promote chemical lifecycle management approaches. This unique webinar series is designed to help participants quickly learn how to baseline chemical lifecycle costs, develop a program to improve chemical management, and understand the Chemical Management Services (CMS) model. Jill Kauffman Johnson, Executive Director of CSP, will moderate the training series with practitioners from the field providing insight and examples. Each session will provide a mix of interactive exercises and expert presentations.

The training is offered free of charge and is open to the public. Sessions from this program may be eligible for CMPs from the Institute for Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM).

Who should attend: Those interested in developing a better understanding of the business and environmental costs associated with chemical management, purchasing managers and EHS professionals, and those interested in expanding their understanding of the Chemical Management Services implementation process.

This training has been developed by the Chemical Strategies Partnership, under EPA's contract with SRA.

The National Partnership for Environmental Priorities (NPEP) is a partnership program focused on reducing the use of potentially hazardous chemicals from products and processes. By forming partnerships with EPA, NPEP partners representing industry, business, municipalities, federal facilities, and tribes, are successfully reducing the use of and/or recycling toxic chemicals, including mercury and lead. NPEP success stories illustrate partner commitment to environmental stewardship and show why NPEP has adopted the slogan: Better Environment, Better Neighbor, Better Business.
