Upcoming Events: August 10, 2007 at Harvard University

The Chlorine Free Products Association is co-hosting a roundtable discussion on Greening the Supply and Purchasing Chains. We have gathered together purchasing, sustainability, and facility management representatives from colleges, universities, hospitals, and governments to discuss topics on: Recycling standards, closing the loop, energy, water use, reducing carbon gases, and environmentally preferred products.

The speakers will reveal sources of reliable information used by each panelist in setting parameters and developing partners used in Greening their Supply Chain. Panel members and attendees as well will be asked to participate in three activities:
* Where do you get reliable information on Greening the Supply Chain when setting guidelines?
* What certifications/logos are recognizable? What do they certify?
* How do you define sustainability, and what products or companies are leaders in this field?

The discussion will be moderated by Kevin Lyons Ph.D. Director of Purchasing at Rutgers University: Rob Gogan, Harvard's supervisor of recycling and waste management, will give a luncheon address. Several other campus sustainability professionals will be participating in the panel discussions.

Join our co-hosts and sponsors: Harvard University, Rutgers University, the New American Dream, Responsible Purchasing Network, Plant a Tree USA™, Earth Day Network, Cascades Inc, Neenah Paper, and National Envelope.
