Reduce Costs, Build Competitiveness, Reduce Risks
Companies that fall under the Toxics Use Reduction Act are required to take training classes, report toxic chemical use and submit plans to MassDEP. They are not required to reduce toxics if it does not make economic sense.
Once companies go through the planning process, many realize that they if they switch to safer substances, they are able to reduce costs, build competitiveness and reduce risks to both workers and the environment. See a few company successes on the right.
