The new Clean Power Plan from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), set to be finalized in mid-summer 2015, has a lot of US manufacturers worried about whether their bottom lines will be affected. On a global scale, US companies are concerned about how increased compliance and other costs initiated by the EPA Clean Power Plan will hinder their competitiveness with international manufacturers.
However, metals purchasing and other procurement professionals shouldn’t despair. Rather, they should reach for the #1 tool at their disposal at this point in the game: educating themselves. The key for procurement folks is understanding the costs and risks involved – and once there, knowing how to implement the proper risk mitigation strategies.
That’s where we come in.
