NAEM Highlights 2016


For November 1st, we’re extremely fortunate to be able to bring our BASG members highlights from this year’s NAEM’s EHS Management Forum. The conference itself will have just wrapped in Denver the prior week, and is the largest annual gathering for environment, health and safety and sustainability decision-makers. NAEM is the National Association for Environmental Management.

Together with NAEM, our BASG team is grateful to have Johanna Jobin of Biogen and Frank Marino of Raytheon moderate an evening that will include several other speakers and feature highlights from the conference’s Zero Waste panel (e.g. living the zero waste journey), the Regulatory Trends panel (e.g. implications from 2015 Paris COP Agreement, REACH 2018, new TSCA requirements and potential circular economies), and two awesome IGNITE sessions.
