NH Greening the Supply Chain

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description NH Ball Bearings (NHBB) in Peterborough, NH, has started a "Greening the Supply Chain" project in which it will help its suppliers develop formal environmental management systems (EMS). Like many manufacturers (e.g., Ford, GM, Nokia, Toyota, IBM, Motorola, and Pratt & Whitney), NHBB is going to use EMS as part of its decision on whether to continue its relationships with particular suppliers. However, NHBB is taking the next step by offering to help the suppliers build their EMSs by forming a partnership with EPA Region 1-New England and NH DES for a long-term training program regarding EMS. This program is being offered to NHBB's suppliers and other interested parties. The program consists of monthly workshops and "homework" that will result in the participating facility successfully building an auditable environmental management system. The cost of the program is free. The program is being funded through EPA Region 1-New England. Capaccio Environmental Engineering, Inc. is conducting the training. NH DES supports this training in accordance with its EMS policy, which can be found at http://www.des.state.nh.us/ factsheets/co/co-11.htm. For more information from NHBB contact Patti Carrier at (603) 924-3311.
