Alternative Planning

Resource Conservation and Environmental Management Systems

The 2006 Amendments to the Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) created alternative planning opportunities for companies subject to TURA that have completed a TUR Plan and two or more updates. These alternative planning opportunities include creating a Resource Conservation (RC) plan every other planning cycle and incorporating toxics use reduction into your Environmental Management System (EMS).

TURI provides training programs to enhance Planners' skills in resource conservation and give them the credits needed to maintain approval from MassDEP to certify facility’s RC plans. TURI also offers specific training to update Planners on the requirements associated with using their EMS as an alternative to regular TUR planning.
