GreenScreen® Newsletter - April 28, 2014

Welcome to the April 2014 edition of the GreenScreen Newsletter, and happy Spring to you!  Even in Alaska, the signs are here.

Clean Production Action is pleased to announce the first individuals to successfully become GreenScreen Certified Practitioners.  Congratulations to Jonathan Ostrowski (Clarke), Cory Robertson (Hewlett Packard), Truus Tiemersma (DSM Ready) and Curtis Wray (Hewlett Packard) for completing the challenging advanced coursework and practicum to complete the Certified Practitioner Program.

We have also provided a variety of webinars and in-person trainings. See below for more information about upcoming training opportunities and recent events.  A recent webinar offered in collaboration with BizNGO on “Safer Chemicals in Building Products: How to Get LEED Credit” may be of particular interest to many of you.

You may also enjoy a recent article published on GreenBiz.com written by Lauren Heine and Stacy Glass of the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, “Where Is Your Company on the Path to Safer, Healthier Products?”.  GreenScreen assessments may now be used in support of Cradle to Cradle product certification.

We hope you find this newsletter to be of value and we appreciate your interest and participation in moving the market to greener chemicals, green chemistry and a circular (and C2C) material economy.

Sincerely,


Dr. Lauren Heine

GreenScreen® Newsletter - March 3, 2014 image

Welcome to the first issue of our periodic community newsletter. It is our goal to provide you with updates on the GreenScreen method, case studies, opportunities to improve your GreenScreen assessment skills and upcoming events and trainings. We hope it is of use to you, and welcome your feedback.

2014 is proving to be an exciting year with leaders in a variety of industry sectors, government agencies, NGOs, standard development bodies and more, driving increased visibility and movement toward greener and safer chemicals in products.

In this first newsletter, please find information on a number of opportunities for your active participation in the GreenScreen Program. We seek to expand the community of practitioners and to continue to improve the method and its utility through our combined expertise and creativity.

Thank you to those of you who participated in our recent survey. Your feedback is much appreciated and is being used to continually improve the program.

Warm regards, especially to those of you in the very cold, “lower 48”,
