I have presented on global, national, state and local chemicals-management policy since 2003. My policy work has included implementing San Francisco’s Precautionary Purchasing Ordinance, research support on the chemical list for the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, and shaping California’s ground-breaking Safer Consumer Product regulations. In addition, I have participated in the UN Environment Program’s Chemicals in Products project under the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM). See all my presentations on this topic.
I present regularly on toxics reduction strategies and chemicals prioritization in products in a variety of business sectors. My expertise includes developing decision-making frameworks for selecting safer alternatives to chemicals, materials and products for a green economy. See all my presentations on this topic.
I have presented on my research into potentially toxic ingredients in consumer and institutional products since 2003, including work on brominated flame retardants, antimicrobial/antibacterial chemicals, household and institutional cleaning products, personal care products, hormone disrupting chemicals, and garment cleaning solvents. I continue to present on chemical prioritization and the shift to safer alternatives to chemicals in products. See all my presentations on this topic.
