The Materials Message

Communicating the value and importance of materials management is a critical component of the Forum’s work. The Forum collectively created some outreach materials that you may tailor and use when talking with your community, to address the questions below and explain materials management rationale:

  • What do we mean by materials?
  • What’s a lifecycle perspective?
  • What’s the connection between product consumption and greenhouse gas emissions?
  • How can your jurisdiction reduce material-related greenhouse gases?

Use this PowerPoint presentation and narrative script to share the Sustainable Materials Management message with your community.
