Bridging the Gap between Safety and Sustainability

Building the new green economy will take more than simply developing green products—it will require developing, manufacturing and validating products that meet safety as well as sustainability requirements. As regulators, manufacturers and consumers march down the path of enhanced environmental options, many traditional materials and processes will be challenged. This session will focus on emerging issues such as addressing the sometimes conflicting objectives of safety and sustainability. As new standards are developed and innovative solutions introduced, the marketplace will present unique opportunities for those ready and able to take on the challenge.

Stephen Wenc is president of UL Environment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UL (Underwriters Laboratories).  UL is an independent Standards Development Organization, Testing Lab and Certification Body with a Mission to enhance life safety and facilitate global commerce.  As president, Steve leads global operations and development of the company’s business in the environmental sector.  Steve is a member of the US Green Building Council, UL Environment’s representative on the Sustainable Building Alliance and an advisory board member for the Disney Planet Challenge Program. He also is a member of the American Bar Association and the Chicago Bar Association.
