Why Become a Toxics Use Reduction Planner?

Companies increasingly recognize that what is good for human health and the environment is also good for business and the bottom line. Effective toxics use reduction (TUR) protects workers, communities, and the environment, while sharpening a company's competitive edge. TUR Planners are essential to this process. Learn more about the role of the TUR Planner.

The Toxics Use Reduction Institute offers the TUR Planning course annually to train professionals responsible for assuring a company's TUR planning is done in good faith and yields new opportunities to create a more efficient and sustainable operation.

If your company reports on its use of toxic chemicals, is there someone in your organization who should take this course? if you are already a Toxics Use Reduction Planner, please pass this information onto your colleagues.
