OTA offers the Right from the Start program to provide Massachusetts businesses with the technical and regulatory support needed to maximize environmental and economic performance. It is especially designed to encourage businesses seeking to expand or start new manufacturing operations to meet regulatory requirements by designing pollution out of the process before the construction or modification phase.
While better environmental designs may require an initial investment, the reduced toxics and materials use, and reduced environmental liability costs often lead to savings in the long-term.
Through the Right from the Start program, OTA aims to reduce the business costs associated with environmental pollution and worker health and safety hazards, thereby improving the competitive advantage of Massachusetts companies.
Right from the Start offers:
Information on current regulatory requirements
Access to training and business mentoring organizations like the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) at UMass Lowell and the Central Massachusetts Business Environmental Network (CMBEN)
Access to state and federal funding opportunities and other incentive programs, including industry grants from the Toxics Use Reduction Institute and state-sponsored energy efficiency incentive programs from local utilities.
Information on applied green chemistry practices, pollution prevention, and cleaner production technologies.
