  • IPC supports efforts to ensure that regulations are practical, cost-effective, and prioritized according to levels of risk. 
  • IPC relies on volunteers to participate in its Environment and Health Strategic Management Team, a group of industry professionals who help IPC identify policy priorities and shape advocacy efforts.
  • IPC convenes regular meetings of its Environment, Health and Safety Committee to provide a forum for information exchange and dialogue about the EHS topics relevant to their companies.
