A progress report to the Governor. 2008.

The Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) of 1989 encourages companies to reduce toxic chemical use in Massachusetts. The data show that companies have voluntarily reduced toxic chemical use while maintaining their competitive advantage. Industries subject to reporting since 1990 have reduced their toxic chemical use by 40 percent, byproducts by 71 percent, and releases on site by 91 percent. The law was amended in 2006 to provide flexibility in planning and better focus program resources on helping companies reduce the use of higher hazard substances.
