TURI hosted a series of web-based trainings in March and April for Planners interested in obtaining or maintaining their Resource Conservation (RC) planning credentials. After a day-long review of why and how RC planning can be used as an alternative to toxics use reduction planning every other planning cycle, we were joined by subject matter experts from:
- Minnesota’s Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP)
- Center for EcoTechnology
- Zero Waste USA
Attendees learned more about industrial opportunities for water conservation, energy conservation and source reduction of the materials that contribute to solid waste.
TURI organizes trainings on RC planning as well as on the use of a TURA Environmental Management System (EMS) on alternating years. EMS training is only offered when requested.
If you or your facility are interested in exploring the possibility of using a TURA EMS in lieu of regular TUR planning, please contact Pam Eliason.
