GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals Training Headed to Detroit

4/13/11 CPA Press Releases


The National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR) is partnering with Clean Production Action (CPA) to present a GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals training. The GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals training will take place during the National Environmental Sustainability Summit in Detroit, Michigan.

The GreenScreen is a comparative chemical hazard assessment tool used by business, government, academia, and industry to support informed substitution of chemicals and materials that are safer for human health and the environment. The assessment tool can support informed material selection at any stage in the supply chair, and has been used to prioritize chemicals for phase-out and to select safer alternatives. Leading users of the Green Screen include Hewlett Packard and the Washington State Department of Ecology.

The full day training course will provide the essential understanding to begin incorporating the GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals methodology into your material selection or regulatory decisions. The day long training will begin at 8:00 a.m. and run through 4:00 p.m. Cost for the training is $95 per attendee and a box lunch is included in the cost of this training.
