- The Toxics Use Reduction Program was established in 1990 and has continuously helped Massachusetts businesses reduce the use of toxic chemicals and conserve other resources, such as energy, water and waste. Information on the program, including current data and other notable achievements can be found on this page.
- Massachusetts companies that use large quantities of specific toxic chemicals are required to evaluate and plan for pollution prevention opportunities, implement them if practical, and report their results annually to the Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP).
- The Toxics Use Reduction Act was amended in 2006. Links to the amended Toxics Use Reduction Act and links to related EEA and MassDEP regulations are located on this page.

- The Advisory Committee to the Administrative Council is composed of fifteen stakeholders that provide the Council with a forum for discussing TURA implementation issues. The fifteen members include representation of environmental advocacy, public health, labor, industry and the general public. Committee members are appointed by the Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
