Several CBIA members falling under the Toxic Release Inventory Program have recently expressed interest in hearing how other companies have dealt with their TRI reporting responsibilities.

CBIA would like to invite you to be a part of an informal discussion designed to be an exchange of information between members who would like to learn about best practices when it comes to complying with TRI reporting requirements.

If you're interested in joining the conversation, email CBIA's Phillip Montgomery or call 860-244-1982.

About the TRI

Created in 1986 and administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the TRI is a resource for learning about toxic chemical releases and pollution prevention activities reported by industrial and federal facilities.

The TRI tracks the management of certain toxic chemicals that may pose a threat to human health and the environment.

U.S. facilities in different industry sectors must report annually how much of each chemical is released to the environment and/or managed through recycling, energy recovery and treatment. (A "release" of a chemical means that it is emitted to the air or water, or placed in some type of land disposal.)

All U.S. facilities that meet TRI reporting criteria must submit TRI data to EPA and the relevant state or tribe by July 1 of each year.
