Peer Mentoring Networks for the Cable Supply Chain

Organization(s) Toxics Use Reduction Institute
Project Description In the fall of 2001, the Toxic Use Reduction Institute (TURI) assembled approximately 30 MA companies from throughout the coated wire and cable supply industries for a focus group on emerging global environmental issues. Current and pending legislation in Europe and Japan would phase-out the use of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium and some brominated flame retardants in electronics, vehicles and some other products. In order to help the wire and cable companies respond to the needs of their global customers, the Institute has put together information on environmental issues and alternative safer materials. The focus group meeting provided a forum to inform companies about the issues, hear from the wire and cable industry's suppliers about new innovative materials, and hear what their customers are looking for.
