CICC Urged Governor to Support Green Chemistry Bills

 

 

CICC is grateful to Todd Maiden and Eric McLaughlin of our Affiliate member ReedSmith Law Firm for their thoughtful analysis of the subject legislation, and their perceptive comments regarding the path forward. 

 

"The most prominent features of California's green chemistry law are its foundation on science and real-life assessment of chemical usage and exposure risk," they write.  "Like all new regulations, those promulgated under the Green Chemistry law will impose operational changes and up-front compliance costs on the regulated community.  However, change also presents new opportunity.  Compliance with California's green chemistry law will likely reduce the costs of proper hazardous waste management and disposal, and satisfaction of workplace safety and health requirements.  New opportunities to market products and processes as eco-friendly will also arise."  To read memo, Member please  Log-In >> CICC News >> select Green Chemistry Memo
