Meeting Preview: FMA Green Workshop

Posted: September 17, 2008

On October 15, the Fragrance Materials Association (FMA) will be holding its Fall workshop entitled "Green: Sustainability in a Changing Environment." To be held at the Teaneck Marriott in Glenpointe, NJ, this workshop aims to answer some of the following key questions surrounding what it means to be "green" in the fragrance industry:

These and other questions will be addressed in the morning's panel discussion on “green” fragrances. The panelists include Lauren Heine (Lauren Heine Group LLC), Hee Joeng Son (Belmay) and Dan Salvito (Research Institute for Fragrance Materials).

In addition, the event's keynote speaker, Peter Calow (University of Roskilde, Denmark), will present "Consumer Climate Change: Innovating in a Greener World." Consumers show increasing interest in green products and socially responsible company practices. From organic and natural ingredients to sustainable resources, fair trade agreements, and carbon footprints, these emerging trends will require new and innovative ways of sourcing, manufacturing, and marketing products and fragrances.

The workshop will take place from 9 AM–12 PM, followed by a luncheon.
