    Illinois's Tim Lindsey, Kentucky's Cam Metcalf, and Massachusetts' Rick Reibstein, are all experts on pollution prevention. To pass along their decades of knowledge and expertise, each of them have become book authors. Attend this P2U webinar and learn how various aspects of their books can bring pollution prevention together for a variety of important decision-makers.


    Cam Metcalf, Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC)'s founding Executive Director in 1995, retired in October, 2013.  With a career spanning nearly 40 years, Cam is well known as a pioneer and a national leader in advancing pollution prevention (P2) and energy efficiency (E2).  Cam's technical expertise, innovative vision, and engaging leadership style enable the Center to gain a national reputation and become an award-winning champion of P2 and environmental sustainability.

    During his career, Cam has received several awards including: NPPR's 2001 Bill Bilkovich Individual Achievement Award for P2, and EPA Region 4's Inaugural Environmental Merit Award honoring his work within the community to sustain our natural systems and promote environmental stewardship.  Cam also served on he Board of Directors for the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable.

    Dr. Tim Lindsey spent 20 years at the University of Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC), where he developed and led their applied research, education, and outreach efforts.  In his roles there, he worked with hundreds of companies and communities to develop and implement more sustainable processes, products, and systems through improvements in materials, devices, machinery, methods, chemistries, and energy sources.   Tim holds three US patents regarding industrial fluids management and water purification.

    For over 40 years, Tim Lindsey has helped hundreds of organizations increase their effectiveness through improved sustainability performance in their processes, products, and systems.  Tim has authored multiple publications on sustainable business innovation.  And, in 2018, his book titled Headwinds of Opportunity:  A Compass for Sustainable Innovation was published by Routledge and received the Silver Axiom Business Book Award in the category of Sustainability.

    Richard Reibstein, JD has helped develop the field of pollution prevention and provided hundreds of workshops and public presentations.  He has also served as a US Environmental Protection Agency enforcement attorney, and taught environmental law and policy at Northeastern University, Boston University, Clark University, Suffolk University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Harvard Extension School.  Rick has prompted and participated in regulatory improvement efforts at the federal, state, and international levels.

    After decades working for and with environmental agencies while teaching part-time, Rick Reibstein now teaches full-time at Boston University providing courses he created.  His goal is to increase understanding of the necessity and benefits of rebuilding environmental governance.  He seeks to inspire greater civic engagement and consensus finding and uses his expertise to connect students to efforts to improve law and program effectiveness.
