THE CHEMUNICATOR

E W S Croda ranked UK’s most sustainable corporation

ABS Quality Evaluations, Inc. recently awar ded ISO 50001:2011 cer tification to APCO Industries Co. Limited (APCO). APCO—a Toronto-based industrial chemicals processor and distributor of 76 years—is among the first org anizations in Canada to g ain this cer tification. ISO 50001:2011 is a new inter national standard specifying requirements for Energ y Manag ement Systems and is a voluntar y framework for any type of org anization using e n e r g y - i n d u s t r y, buildings, and public sector.

Croda is pleased to announce that the 2013 ‘Global 100 Most Sustainable Cor porations’ re por t has ranked it as the highest placed UK-based company and at number 25 in the world. T he re por t, which is compiled annually by Cor porate Knights, a Canadian media org anization specializing in the area of cor porate sustainability, is now in its 9th year. It is the most extensive datadriven cor porate sustainability assessment and is based on the financial, social and environmental perfor mance of around 4,000 of the world’s larg est listed companies. T he results of the re por t demonstrate Croda’s increased emphasis on sustainability and highlight the impor tance that it plays in the Company’s ong oing strateg y. T his focus will continue to enhance the financial perfor mance of the Company, and deliver key environmental, social and g over nance benefits.

David Grierson, Vice President, APCO says: “Achieving this recognition demonstrates our commitment of building energ y manag ement into our ever yday business practice and a framework for promoting energ y efficiency throughout our org anization. We thank Mr. Georg e Yonemori, P.Eng, and the rest of the APCO team for their effor ts and dedication in development and implementation of APCO’s energ y manag ement system.”

Commenting, Steve Foots, Chief Executive of Croda, said: “I am delighted that Croda’s sustainability credentials have been endorsed so comprehensively in this re por t. Our high global ranking and leading position in the UK ref lects the significant amount of time that we have invested in this area. Our objective is to excel even fur ther and make sustainability a major point of difference for the business. We ar e confident that this strateg y will g enerate even g reater benefits for the environment in which we operate, the people that we work with and our shareholders.”

T he ISO 50001:2011 cer tification confir ms that the plant operates a robust energ y manag ement system that calls for actions such as establishing an energ y baseline, demonstrating energ y reductions, creating energ y g oals and action plans, and managing significant energ y-consuming equipment.

DSN LAUNCHES Bulk Liq uid & Dry Transportation

ABS Quality Evaluations Inc. Vice President Americas, Dominic Townsend says: “It is evident from APCO’s cer tification that the org anization takes a proactive stance in reducing its environmental footprint and ensur ing it promotes energ y efficiency throughout the sup ply chain.”

CA C D’S N E W E S T S U PP LIER PARTN ER S With so many of them failing today, much of these funds become a draining expense rather than a key investment.

CRESTCOM

Evidently, “training” is the #1 reason leadership development fails. W hile it is often acce pted as productive, it rarely perfor ms outside the realms of health and safety. T he ter ms training and development have somehow become synonymous when they are clearly not. T his is more than an argument based on semantics – it’s painfully real and costs not only the billions in immediate spending, but billions more in lost revenue for org anizations that are not reaching their potential and the many more failing entirely.

Stop Training Mana gement and Star t Developing Leader s Many people have encountered a typical manag ement training prog ram, and subsequently suffered the unfor tunate experience of it not coming close to accomplishing what it was designed to accomplish: building better leaders. According to the Canadian and American Societies of Training and Development, Nor th American businesses spend more than $200 Billion dollars on leader ship-based cur riculums, with the majority of those dollars being spent on “Leadership Training.”

T he Pr oblem T he problem with training is that it presumes the need for indoctrination on systems, processes and 12


SPRING 2013

New Supplier P A

techniques. Moreover, training assumes that said systems, processes and techniques are the right way to do things. Training focuses on best practices, while development focuses on next practices. Training is often a, one directional; one dimensional, one size fits all, authoritarian process that imposes static, outdated infor mation on people. T he majority of training takes place within a monologue rather than a dialog. Perhaps worst of all, training usually occurs within a vacuum inside a single company, driven by past experience, and not by future needs.

R T N E R

Mike Myatt, of Forbes mag azine says it best; “If what you desire is a robotic, static thinker – train them. If you’re seeking innovative, critical thinkers – develop them. It is impossible to have an enter prise which is g rowing and evolving if its leadership is not.” For more infor mation on leadership development check out www.crestcomleadership.com Or contact Michael Gibson at: michael.gibson@crestcom.com.

T he Solution T he solution to the leadership training problem is to scrap it in favor of development. Don’t train leaders, coach them, mentor them, and develop them. W here training attempts to standardize by adherence to the status quo, development evokes the unique and differentiates by shattering it. Training is something leaders dread and will tr y and avoid, whereas actionable development, they will embrace.

AN U PDAT E F R O M T H E Y B T C C H AIR

R OSA NNA A URE L L O

As the new YBTC Canada Committee Chair, I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank the past chair, Steve Jones for his commitment t o the YBTC Team. It is my pleasure to provide you with an update regarding an initiative that we are ver y passionate about! There are many facet s to the YBTC Canada team that add value to this program: • YBTC sub-chair: Uli Miersch • M  arketing & Outreach Subcommittee: Frans des Tombe, Dave Ballantyne, Catherine Wieckowska & Fatima Alexander • G rants & Fundraising Subcommitttee: Bonnie Miller, Peter DiTecco, Ian Dowding, Dave Ballantyne, and the CACD staff. • C anadian Challenge Committee: Stephane St-Jacques, Peggy Woessman, Rosanna Aurello, and the CACD staff. We were pleased to host our first YBTC Canada Challenge in Stratford, Ontario back in November 2012. The entire YBTC team, consisting of industr y volunteers and CACD employees, invested a lot of energy to make this first pilot challenge such a success! We learned a lot from this challenge and our long term vision would be to host YBTC Challenges across Canada. It is clearly beneficial for the chemical industr y to Bring Chemistr y to the Classroom, and this is simply not possible without the required funding. The YBTC Grants & Fundraising subcommittee has been awarded funding from Imperial Oil – a major milestone! The Canadian YBTC Challenge subcommittee is gearing up once again . Thanks to the funding received from Imperial Oil, YBTC Canada will host a YBTC Challenge in Edmonton, Alberta in the fall of 2013. We have applied for two other grants in 2013 and are awaiting their responses as well. Looking for ward to our new endeavors in 2013!

FEATURE STORY: YBTC Canada in the Community I n No v e m b e r, 2 0 1 2 Cathy Campbell and Catherine Wieckowska presented to the Ontario School Safety Education Officers Community Committee (OSSEOC) at the York Region Police station. Police and community officers were in attendance, from various jurisdictions within southern Ontario. Attendees participated in Lesson 8: Milk Rainbow, and many are interested in incorporating YBTC activities into their community programs.

Through the OSSEOC presentation, YBTC Canada was contacted by a fellow presenter from BOOST Child Abuse Prevention & Inter vention, located in Toronto. BOOST is a charity committed to eliminating abuse and violence in the l ives of children, youth, and their families. We worked with BOOST to identify lesson plans that they could use to help their groups interpret their emotions. YBTC Canada then donated a Chemistr y To Go Kit to help them run some of the experiments. In Januar y of 2013, Cathy and Catherine presented the You Be The Chemist 速 Canada program to 10 teachers at Canadian Martyrs Catholic Elementar y School located in Burlington, ON. By hosting a complimentar y lunch workshop we were able to engage all of the science teachers. They have committed to using the program within their school. YBTC Canada will be back at the school in June to conduct a hands-on experiment with the students.

Sav e The D at e Mark your calendars for the 1 st You Be The Chemist 速 Canada Golf Tournament & Fundraiser, which is being held at Lionhead Golf & Countr y Club, on September 11th, 2013. The event will include lunch and a shot gun tournament, followed by dinner and a silent auction. We encourage organizations to build their own foursomes, but all golfers are welcome. All proceeds of this event will go to the You Be The Chemist 速 Canada program. Our goal is to raise enough funds to donate 200 Chemistr y To Go Kits to elementar y schools across Canada. In addition, we will be hosting a silent auction after the golf tournament. Stayed tuned for updates on the items up for bid! Proceeds of the auction will go towards hosting a YBTC Challenge in the 2013/2014 school year. Your involvemen t will make this event succ essful, as well as fun. So come on out and support this important initiati ve!

Regulatory Generations...where to from here?

D a v e S a u cier

The Chemunicator theme for this issue is “generations”. During 2011 the CACD celebrated its 25th anniversary and in many regards, it’s coming of age. Much was accomplished by the first generation of CACD members. Much more will have to be done by the current generation to maintain the frenetic regulatory compliance pace to sustain positions and achieve growth in the Canadian chemical industry.

governments interact. The provincial and territorial members are still passionately debating regulatory points that have been in force for almost 25 years. The revision to CEPA in 1999 commenced the third generation of our current regulatory revolution. The barrage started in earnest with a long list of government initiatives, policies and regulations regarding chemicals. Drug and Explosive Precursor regulations were enacted; CEPA Section 71 mandatory sur veys were launched to assist with categorizing and prioritizing existing substances and the subsequent Chemical Challenge to Industry with Batch 1 through 12, now commonly referred to as the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP). The National Pollutants Release Inventory (NPRI) was introduced.

Ma na ge r, Re gula to r y & Go v e r n me n t A ffa ir s

This brief vignette will take us through the regulatory generations and conclude with where I think the path will lead. With respect to chemical regulations we are now concluding the third generation, and fast approaching the commencement of the fourth. Regrettably or gratefully, depending on the day and my personal perspective, I have lived through all these generations and hope to continue to participate in the next few, at the very least.

Significant New Activity orders (SNAc) were published and the debate still rages whether a SNAc is a regulation without having gone through the regulatory process. CMP phase 2 was announced in late 2011 with funding to continue the good work built on phase 1.

I can safely say that life was simple prior to 1985 before the first onslaught of regulations to impact the chemical distribution industry, which was for all intents and purposes the Transport of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDG). Good ‘ole perennial Her Honour Hazel McCallion, the enduring Mayor of Mississauga, “lit a fire under the Government of Canada’s chair” and insisted on regulations in response to the infamous Mississauga derailment that occurred at the same time I started my first chemical distribution job in November 1979.

In between, we’ve had Environmental Emergency, Pollution Prevention Plan regulations; the City of Toronto Sewer By-law 681; the Ontario Toxic Reductions Act, to name but a few. So what is the next generation of regulations going to provide in terms of complexity and challenges? Well, we already know of a few imminent ones almost at the Canada Gazette stage: GHS and new Dangerous Goods Transport Security regulations are being drafted. The new Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) has been created between Canada and the United States to harmonize regulations to improve border security and trade between our respective countries, something we desperately need (I hope).

Since then I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to have to deal, in one way or another, with the following generations of regulations now in play and on the horizon that have and will affect our industry. The year was 1988 and ushered in Generation 2 of the regulation revolution to hit distribution. A one-two punch with the jab being the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), followed quite quickly with the uppercut and introduction of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) and the creation of the Domestic Substances List (DSL). In fact there were multiple DSL’s developed back then.

The antiquated Food and Drug Act will be modernized; Volatile Organic Compound limits for personal care and consumer products are under development and will be in force during 2018. The list of non-regulated chemicals which can be used to produce illicit drug and/or explosives continues to grow and provides communication and awareness training issues that must be addressed. Who could have imagined that Citric Acid or Calcium Carbonate sales would be monitored to make sure that they are not diverted for nefarious reasons?

I recall many members being offered the opportunity to voluntarily participate in the “core” DSL which was published in August 1989. I also recall the majority declining to take advantage of the invitation. 200 companies did indeed participate including my employer at the time. This was followed by the “provisional” DSL where all companies in Canada were “invited” to add to the core list. The provisional list became the official DSL on July 1, 1994 and is what we all use today.

I think this little trip down memory lane provides clarity on one single point of focus – training. One of the recent CACD branding exercise tag lines is EDUCATION MATTERS. Never has this been more accurate! The challenges all member companies are faced with today is exponentially more complex than when we were faced with the need to develop compliance programs to TDG, then WHMIS and then CEPA.

The Responsible Distribution Code of Practice was born at this time and will itself commence its 3rd generation at this year’s annual general meeting. New Substance Notification regulations came into force on July 1, 1994.

We must ensure that the current and next generations of employees in our industry have the necessary tools to be able to manage the complexities of the regulatory world we must all live and thrive within. Our industry is easy pickings – the Government has almost carte blanche with alcohol, tobacco and chemicals in regards to regulatory proposals, all in the name of protecting Canadians.

As an aside, I recently participated in the WHMIS Current Issues Committee teleconference to update members on the current status of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS), and much to my comfort, nothing has changed between how the federal and provincial
