Presentation by Ben Mead, Managing Director, Hohenstein Institute America: Implementing Greener Chemistry in Supply Chains 

Green chemistry is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances. This means going beyond restricted substance lists to include hazard assessments and proactive re-formulations. It requires systematically harmonizing and updating standards to stay ahead of industry and legal changes. Where do you start?  We’ll discuss how industry collaborations are helping companies move beyond risk management to hazard elimination.

Learning outcomes:

  • What green chemistry is and how it can be implemented
  • A systematic approach to greener chemistry combining existing certifications
  • The importance of industry collaborations for a healthier supply chain
