Rich Liroff is founder and Executive Director of the Investor Environmental Health Network (IEHN). IEHN encourages companies to eliminate toxic chemicals in their products and supply chains. IEHN has also led investor efforts to get fracking companies to disclose and reduce the risks from their operations. IEHN investors moved CVS to adopt a pioneering safe cosmetics policy; prompted McDonalds to develop an integrated pest management program for its potato growers, led Whole Foods Market to pioneer elimination of BPA baby bottles and, with NGO partners, prompted Home Depot and Lowes to stop selling plants treated with bee-threatening pesticides. With ICCR and other partners, Liroff led creation of investor risk disclosure guidelines for fracking companies and four annual disclosure scorecards that have led to sizeable increases in corporate disclosures and adoption of best practices. Liroff founded IEHN in 2004 following a successful 25 year career at World Wildlife Fund. He’s published a half dozen books and scores of shorter pieces. He manages and writes “The Right Chemistry” blog at greenbiz.com. He earned a Ph.D in Political Science from Northwestern University and a B.A. in Politics from Brandeis University.
