Upcoming Webinar – Regulations and Retailer Expectations: Managing Chemicals in the CPG Supply Chain

The SSC Team December 4, 2014 Strategic Sustainability Consulting No comments

Today, the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies are facing a tough situation. It's now a challenge for them to keep up with the rapidly changing expectations on chemical use and chemical management in their products, processes and supply chain.

Retailers and manufacturers in the CPG supply chain face increasing scrutiny over material use. Whether it's ongoing compliance related to international laws and regulations such as REACH, or new expectations around disclosure of conflict minerals, CPG companies must have robust and effective tools in place to keep them out of trouble. In addition to staying on top of existing and emerging regulations, CPG companies must also continuously evaluate and respond to their customers' demands on green chemistry, materials stewardship, and chemicals management. Over the last months, major retailers such as Walmart has started listing chemicals to eliminate, and CPG companies can only expect more such lists as time goes by.

In this presentation, expert speaker Jennifer Woofter will provide participants with an overview of changing chemical management expectations and best practices for managing current and future requirements. You will get a better understanding of how current chemical regulations impact CPG manufacturers, distributors and retailers. Going further, you will understand how non-governmental stakeholders are driving the way CPG companies manage chemicals at each stage of the supply chain. The session will also look into what CPG companies can expect in the coming five years, and how should they get prepared right now to face the upcoming challenges.

Session Highlights:

  1. How major retailers like Walmart and Target are shaping the CPG industry's approach to chemical management
  2. Why staying in compliance with local laws and regulations is no longer enough
  3. How to protect confidential and proprietary information in the face of demands for transparency
  4. Who is leading the charge on chemicals management - government or industry
  5. Also, get access to leading 5 resources to stay on top of green chemistry trends

The webinar will take pace on Thursday, February 26, 2015 at 1:00 pm ET. You can register for the webinar here.
