Join this mini-lab to see examples of how some firms are addressing these challenges and what are they doing to more effectively manage chemicals in the supply chain.

Leading this mini-lab is Dr. Joel TicknerAssociate Professor in the Department of Community Health and Sustainability at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.

Joel is a leading expert on chemicals regulation, regulatory science, and application safer materials in science and policy and currently directs the Green Chemistry and Commerce Council, a network of 75 companies dedicated to advancing safer chemistry through supply chains.
