Green Chemistry

Overview Industry Overview:

Green chemistry is a new and rapidly growing field, defined by the EPA as “the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances… across the life cycle of a chemical product, including its design, manufacture, use, and ultimate disposal.” Producers and consumers alike are intrigued by this field’s promise of more natural materials, energy efficiency, and environmental benefits all at a lower cost.

With an increased consumer demand concerning environmental protection, green chemistry doesn’t just improve the world we live in: it improves companies’ bottom lines. Industries can save money by using substances which are less likely to cause waste or contribute to chemical accidents, and the use of these processes can be a major selling point to consumers who want to know that the products they are purchasing are part of the solution, rather than contributing to the problem.

On behalf of myself and the other two members of Thomas Swan’s team charged with finding our new President of Swan Chemical Inc., I would like to say thank you for Ropella’s excellent planning and execution of the search which met all of our needs.  We ended up with the optimum person in this position. Your disciplined search system and superior personnel definitely worked well, even shortly after a devastating hurricane hit the Gulf Coast!

I was impressed with Ropella’s attention to detail in ascertaining our needs, developing the optimum candidate profile and preparing the skills survey, which helped in getting an understanding of candidates beyond the “all good news” that is in resumes. The psychological profiling and innovative reference checking also cut out the positive bias in how these aspects are presented by candidates. The compensation spreadsheet was useful in looking at entire compensation picture from the point of view of the finalists.
