Green - Global Product Stewardship Green - Global Product Stewardship Presentation Transcript

  • Global Product Stewardship Environmental Initiative Business & Environment Series Product Stewardship October 25, 2011
  • Objective and Overview
    • Objective Today:
    • Product Stewardship Fundamentals
    • Business Impacts/Applicability
    • Regulatory Drivers
    • Approaches and Actions
  • What is Product Stewardship?
    • Product Safety Support
    • Is the product safe and sustainable as used for humans and the environment at all stages of product lifecycle from raw material sourcing, manufacturing, to marketing/use and disposal/recycle?
        • Toxicology, ecotoxicology, physical/chemical property assessment to identify hazards (ex. PBT), fate & transport and impact assessment, and assistance in selection of “Greener Alternatives”
        • This is quantitatively managed via Risk Assessment and Life Cycle Assessment tailored to the appropriate audience whether workers, customers, regulators, the public, or NGOs.
        • Chemical Product Hazard Classification, MSDSs, and Labeling is a key issue that impacts global business (i.e., GHS/CLP).
  • What is Product Stewardship?
    • 2. Global Product Regulatory Compliance
      • Strategic and technical support to meet current and emerging regulatory compliance requirements
      • New and existing chemical product registration at federal, state, and international levels:
          • Chemicals, Pesticides, Drugs, Feed Additives, Consumer Products and durable goods across US, Canada, EU, China, South Korea, Japan
          • Improved speed to market via ability to replicate regulators decision making schemes to gain government approvals of new products ASAP
      • EU REACH legislation is a gigantic product re-registration issue with global business impacts and it is expanding globally
      • Hazard classification, labeling, MSDS, product defense, Nanotechnologies, customs certification and supply chain issues like Walmart/Kmart registration
  • The squeeze Operations Your Customers Their Customers (Consumers) Sources & Suppliers End of Life Products& Services Supplier Resistance Market and Regulatory Expectations
  • Three business questions
    • What is in your products?
      • What is the chemical composition?
      • If you have these data, are they in a smart-searchable and automatable database system?
    • What matters?  
      • What product performance claims are you making?
      • What obligations or restrictions do you need to be concerned about in the markets where you ship them?
    • What can you do about it?
      • Can you comply, substitute, or reduce?
      • Can you educate regulators or customers?
      • Are there other business options to consider?
  • Three business approaches
    • Put technical issues into business terms
      • Understand business impacts
      • Use business language
    • Look for both risk and opportunities  
      • Risks of product deselection and operating disruption are real
      • Dealing with risks faster and better than the competition creates opportunities
    • Build collaborative solutions
      • Inside your company- probably not your traditional network
      • Beyond your company, starting with business partners up- and down-stream
  • Value Chain in the Product Development Lifecycle Product Stewardship Services

  • Product Global Regulatory Compliance Challenges
    • The global proliferation of chemical control and downstream product regulations and restrictions is a major challenge facing Multi-National Corporations (MNCs)
    • In business terms this represents a strategic barrier to innovation and a major source of enterprise risk that MNCs are not all suitably positioned to control
    • As these regulations have evolved…….
      • No two are alike
      • They tend to have global supply chain impacts beyond the specific national jurisdiction
    • Net, the cost of international business is increasing, and product & supply chain compliance and stewardship is becoming a critical business function
    • A significant burden, but also a potential source of opportunity and competitive advantage
    • Key Points:
    • Nearly 10-fold increase in number of emerging environmental regulations globally within the last 8-yrs!
    • Focus on substance related regulations in the coming years (REACH, GHS/CLP, TSCA, Safe Chemicals Act etc)
    • Key Point:
    • General increasing trend of the number of environmental regulations on a global-scale
    • Dynamic switch in recent year from EU & AP to US and Canada
    • Technical progress and milestones for implementation of regulations entered into force in previous years are becoming increasingly important to follow.
  •  
  • GE notes critical nature of product stewardship
    • GE Citizenship – 2009 Global Focus on Regulations
    Released July 20, 2010 “ Examples include the release of a Product Stewardship toolkit as an interactive, user-friendly and relevant framework in support of R&D, Product Design/Re-design and launch to market.”
  • Enterprise Risk? SOME EXAMPLES
    • Global Product Stewardship/Compliance KEY in supporting ability to sustain:
    • global product development;
    • global market access;
    • global company reputation
    Product Global Regulatory Compliance Challenges Strategic
    • Risk that can affect Brand and demand for your products
    • Risks that can impact Speed to Market and Intellectual Property
    • Change in Customer Critical Requirements (Black List Effects)
    Operational
    • Disruption of supply chain or site operations
      • (i.e. materials stuck in Customs or no longer available)
    • Risks that can damage your credibility in the marketplace
      • (i.e. – Producer Responsibility / Product Take back)
    Financial
    • Risk to shareholder and marketplace acceptance
    • Risks to Raw Material pricing and availability
      • (i.e. chemicals under pressure in the market place)
    Legal & Compliance
    • Risk of action by regulatory agencies, courts, individuals, customers, suppliers/partners, supply chain
  • Product Global Regulatory Compliance Challenges How Did We get Here?
    • North American and EU Chemical and Product Safety Reassurance and “Right to Know” initiatives been the foundational driver for these regulations
      • >50,000 chemicals in commerce pre-1970 ’s were “Grandfathered” and accepted as already on the markets without government review and transparent safety reassurance
      • Hazard versus Risk based approaches had been a key variable
    • Early regulations sought to control chemical products with an eye towards:
      • Worker/Public/Consumer Safety, and eventually Worker, Community, & Public Right to Know (i.e. Transparency)
    • Latest trends have focused on Sustainability and Transparency with a “Reversal of the Burden of Proof of Safety” from Government to Industry
    • Importantly, EU regulators have been leading the way in evolving and globally exporting their regulatory initiatives for the past 20 years
    • The Globally Harmonized system for Hazard Classification & Labeling (GHS), REACH, and Extended Producer Responsibility initiatives are key examples
      • These are spreading around the world and no two are identical!
  • GHS (Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labeling of Chemical Substances) What is GHS? Why is there a GHS?
    • Classification and Labeling globally inconsistent:
      • Disparate “Hazard Communication”
      • Dissimilar Labeling
      • Compromised SDS content
    • Enhance safety to human health & environment, including the workplace
    • Global Market: “Level the Field”
      • Help standardize existing national regulatory regimes (mature countries)
      • Simplify development and deployment of new chemical regulatory regimes (developing countries)
    • Standardizes and classifies chemical substances by “hazard”
    • Provides comprehensive communication criteria for packaging (labels) and SDS ’s
    • Non-regulatory as such, but countries encouraged to adopt in to their own
    • Regulatory programs
    • by 2008. Adoption is
    • ramping up now
    • across the globe
    • (e.g. REACH/CLP, China)
    The so-called “Purple Book” Third Revised Version Global Implementation is NOT harmonized!
  • EU Harmful (St. Andrew ’ s Cross) US Toxic CAN Toxic Australia Harmful India Non-toxic Japan Toxic Malaysia Harmful Thailand Harmful New Zealand Hazardous China Not Dangerous Korea Toxic Historically, there has been global disharmony in chemical Classification and Labeling. ex. Different risk phrases were used for a substance with an Acute Oral Toxicity LD 50 ~257 mg/kg/day. Illustration of why is GHS necessary? GHS Toxic (Danger + Skull & Cross Bones)
  • GHS Pictograms Physical-Chemical Hazards Explosives Self-Reactive Substances and Mixtures Organic Peroxides Oxidizing Gases Oxidizing Liquids Oxidizing Solids Gases under pressure Refrigerated Liquefied gas Corrosive to Metals Flammable Gases Flammable Aerosols Flammable Liquids Flammable Solids Organic Peroxides Self-Reactive Substances and Mixtures Pyrophoric Solids Self-Heating Substances and Mixtures Contact with Water, Emit Flammable Gas
  • GHS Pictograms Human Health and Environmental Hazards Acute Toxicity: Danger Acute Toxicity: Warning Skin Corrosion/Irritation: Warning (irritation) Eye Damage/Irritation: Warning (irritation) Skin Sensitization: Warning STOT* Single: Warning (Category 3) * Specific Target Organ Toxicity Skin Corrosion/Irritation: Danger (Corrosion) Eye Damage/Irritation: Danger (Corrosion) Germ Cell Mutagenicity: Danger, Warning Respiratory Sensitization: Danger Germ Cell Mutagenicity: Danger, Warning Carcinogenicity: Danger, Warning Toxic to Reproduction: Danger, Warning STOT Single : Danger (Cat 1), Warning (Cat 2) STOT Repeated: Danger, Warning Aspiration Toxicity: Danger, Warning Hazardous to the Aquatic Environment, Warning
  • Alignment of the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard to the GHS
    • Final Rule pending
      • Expected in August, 2011, then September, 2011 – still waiting…..
      • Phase-in period of 2-3 years anticipated once final
    • Major proposed changes to the HCS  
      • Hazard classification (substances and mixtures)
      • Labels (includes harmonized signal word, pictogram and hazard statement + precautionary statements)
      • Safety Data Sheets (specified 16-section format)
      • Information and training (require workers are trained within 2 years of the publication of final rule)
    • Over 40 million workers and 5 million workplaces will be impacted
      • Significant costs associated with classifying chemicals and revising SDSs and labels (OSHA estimates $11 MM/year for ~90,000 establishments)
      • OSHA estimates worker training costs of ~44 MM/year for affected workplaces
  • REACH R egistration E valuation A uthorization/Restriction ……………….of Ch emical Substances In some respects true, but it really means……. new European Union Chemicals Legislation Implemented from 2007 through 2018, but this regulatory framework and approach to chemical control is now “spreading” globally!
  • R eally E liminate A ll Ch emicals REACH =
    • REACH Covers:
    • Chemical substances – as such
    • Preparations – Mixtures of Chemical Substances
    • - Including Alloys
    • Articles
    • Articles designed to release
      • An ink cartridge is an article that contains a substance/preparation (ink)
    REACH IS NOT a PRODUCT REGULATION [like WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) and RoHS (restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment)]. IT IS A CHEMICAL SUBSTANCE REGULATION with direct impact on Products and Global Supply Chains. SiO 2 Powders Organic Polymer + Pigments Metal Alloy formed to give it a functional part Article with embedded Perfume designed to release
    • II. No Data/No Info….. No Market in the EU
      • Manufactures, Importers and downstream users all have obligations
      • Management of Change systems needed to stay in compliance
    Principle REACH Concepts:
    • “ Safe Use” of Chemicals Across Supply Chains + Elimination of the “Hazardous” Ones
      • Global Supply Chain Impacts
      • Requires Industry Collaboration and Alignment
      • Introduces “Substances of Very High Concern” (SVHCs) which also impact articles (e.g., automobiles, furniture, packaging, etc.)

    Finished Products Intermediate Products Primary Chemicals
  • ERM Perspective: The global proliferation of chemical control and downstream product regulations and restrictions is a major challenge facing MNCs
    • What it takes to Comply
      • MNCs need to operationalize for product compliance and stewardship
      • Proactive internal and external program elements
    • Internal – To your Business and Supply Chain
    • Cross Functional Business Engagement:
      • Management, EHS, Product Quality/Technology, Legal, IT, Purchasing/Sourcing
      • Appropriate use of outside resources for expertise and capacity
    • Know your products, supply chains, and obligations:
      • Develop Inventory of Chemical Substances, Direct and Indirect, how much do you use and what used for? Which ones are “Critical” or “At Risk”
      • Understand your suppliers and customers, what are they doing with your products and are they supporting your uses?
      • Be prepared to demonstrate safe and sustainable use … ”Take the Scientific High Ground” and consider providing proactive leadership and transparency
    • ERM Perspective:
    • What it takes to Comply Continued……
    • External – To your Business and Supply Chain
    • Understand and Influence the Regulations
      • Mastery in regulatory requirements, especially how new products are reviewed and assessed by authorities, can be a source of competitive advantage
        • (i.e. Speed to Market!)
      • Opportunity to influence new regulations and restrictions if you engage early enough
    • Know your Industry Peers and Industry Associations
      • Benchmark to identify common shared interests and best practices
      • Industry voice more impactful than single company voice
      • Protect Intellectual Property & Confidential Business Information (CBI)
    • Steward Critical to Business Technologies
      • Know the current and emerging scientific trends
      • Consider proactive presentations and peer review publications, blue ribbon panels and scientific advisory groups as appropriate
