Sustainable materials management (SMM)— using and reusing materials more productively over their entire life cycles— presents new opportunities to reduce environmental impacts, conserve resources and reduce costs. This upcoming webinar will highlight a new resource to help states advance their own SMM efforts: EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management Prioritization State Tool. The tool contains approximately 20 environmental, human health, and socio-economic indicators covering potential indirect and direct impacts of goods and services. Users can screen for those potential impacts, and distinguish between activities occurring within and outside of any particular state, allowing decision makers to differentiate between issues that reside within their jurisdictions and those outside their borders. A case study involving the state of Georgia will be presented to demonstrate the power of the tool. For additional information, visit EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management page.
