||Northeast Forum on Climate and Waste Connections
A Three Part Webinar Series
Region 1 and Region 2

Americans around the country are learning about climate change and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and their carbon footprint. While energy use, energy conservation and alternative energy are often the focus of such efforts, attention is increasingly directed at product life cycles and the opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through waste prevention and recycling during product manufacture, distribution, use, and waste management. Understanding these connections is an important element of climate action plans and strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
EPA Regions 1 and 2 invite you to the Northeast Forum on Climate and Waste Connections. Join us for a series of web-based training sessions and discussions as we hear from experts and practitioners from the Northeast and beyond. Our goal is to advance the discussion about materials management and the climate connection in practical ways that will help communities integrate waste reduction and recycling into climate plans. Through these training sessions we will:
Webinar 1: What is the Climate-Waste Prevention Connection? - Thurs., June 4, 2009 at 1:30 - 3:30 PM EDT
- Bring attention to the climate impacts from managing solid waste and recycling
- Identify issues that would benefit from regional and national collaboration
- Provide tools and assistance for incorporating materials management into climate action plans
Webinar 2: Make Materials Management Count: Tools and Techniques - Wed., June 24, 2009 at 1:30 - 3:30 PM EDT
Webinar 3: Working Together: Reducing GHG through Materials Management - Thurs., July 23, 2009 at 1:30 - 3:30 PM EDT
**You must register for each webinar separately using the links below.**

This is Part 2 of the webinar:
Make Materials Management Count: Tools and Techniques
This is the second in a series of three free web-based trainings on the connection between climate change and waste prevention. This session will identify a number of approaches to measuring the positive climate change impacts of reuse and recycling. The presentations will provide information on greenhouse gas inventories, using the EPA’s WARM Model to calculate the impact of reuse and recycling, ICLEI’s* approach for accounting for greenhouse gas emissions through materials management, and a community’s experience with increasing their recycling rate and identifying the climate change benefits.
Participants will be invited to submit questions and respond to audience discussion questions electronically. We plan to provide responses to all questions that are asked during the webinars. Each webinar will conclude with the opportunity for participants to provide feedback.
* ICLEI is an association of national and regional governments and organizations that have made a commitment to sustainable development.
