IEHN Management Transition

With IEHN counsel, Sanford Lewis, I founded IEHN in 2004 with the goal of encouraging companies to reduce risks of hazardous chemicals in their products and supply chains, and to benefit from new business opportunities associated with safer chemicals. Since 2009 IEHN has also taken a lead role in investor engagements on reducing risks from fracking and benchmarking oil and gas companies on fracking risk management and disclosure.

I am retiring effective December 31, 2017, leaving IEHN in talented hands and with a bright future. IEHN will continue on under the umbrella of Clean Production Action (CPA). CPA is the home of the Chemical Footprint Project, which IEHN has partnered with in garnering support from investors around the world. IEHN will continue to be investor-driven and benefit from CPA’s immense staff knowledge of chemical management issues. Ali (Alexandra) McPherson will replace me as leader of IEHN. She co-founded CPA and in recent years has led efforts to promote sustainable economic development where she lives.

IEHN’s fracking engagements will shift to our partners on the Disclosing the Facts disclosure scorecards, As You Sow (www.asyousow.org) and Boston Common Asset Management (www.bostoncommonasset.com). All other work of IEHN will continue at Clean Production Action.

Please revisit www.iehn.org in 2018 for further developments.
