GLRPPR Sector Resource: Clean By Design

Title:
Clean By Design

Abstract:
When the United States shifted manufacturing overseas, we also "outsourced" the associated pollution and greenhouses gases produced by this manufacturing to countries where there are fewer pollution controls. In addition to threatening the health of local communities in these countries, this resulting pollution can also affect our own health and our environment because so many pollutants -- such carbon, soot (particulate matter), pesticides, mercury and more -- can travel great distances and enter our local environment and food chain. Clean by Design is an innovative program to use the buying power of multinational corporations as a lever to reduce the environmental impacts of their suppliers abroad. Clean by Design focuses on improving process efficiency to reduce waste and emissions and improve the environment.
