Advisory Councils

HCPA members also direct the policy agenda of the association through our Advisory Councils.

Councils like our Federal Government Relations Advisory Council and State Government Affairs Advisory Council identify key state legislative and regulatory issues affecting HCPA member companies and develop positions and strategies to help advance policies that support industry interests. Positions developed by the council are used for formal meetings with policymakers and for testimony used at hearings.

The council encourages accurate representation of environmental information and the development of sound scientific approaches to evaluating the environmental impacts of member company products. Environmental marketing claims are subject to review and enforcement primarily by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and state agencies.  The council focuses its efforts on trying to ensure that criteria that measure and evaluate environmental marketing claims are clear, precise, accurate, and provide a level playing field in environmentally preferable programs. The council helps draft comments on behalf of HCPA on legislative, regulatory and third party standards development activities related to environmental marketing. The council’s work is accomplished by reviewing and defining technical issues, developing technical positions, recommending policy and advising government affairs councils and staff.
