Plastics/Rubber Sector

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description As a result of its work with the plastics sector, OTA, in partnership with Pure Strategies, Inc., identified opportunities to assist the industry on several fronts. The following actions will be taken: development of a guidance document for companies in this sector on more successful negotiation strategies with certification organizations; development of a fact sheet on the benefits of greener wire and cable (W & C) products highlighting Massachusetts companies that manufacture them; a presentation on the industry to the Executive Office of Economic Development, and efforts to promote greener wire and cable products through the state's procurement process and possibly the Green Roundtable (an organization of architects, builders, engineers).
