Many people regard Don Huisingh as the father of the Cleaner Production concept. He is dedicated to interdisciplinary education and integrated approaches to defining and solving society’s problems. He has addressed topics ranging from toxic substances and hazardous waste in industry and the home to the philosophical, ethical, and political implications of improper land-use management, human population growth and control, and energy use.

His work has focused on Pollution Prevention/Waste Reduction approaches to managing toxic substances and hazardous wastes. He has developed policies, concepts, and technologies to help government and industry identify sustainable approaches to pollution prevention and waste minimization. He seeks to improve environmental quality by integrating these preventive approaches with traditional pollution-control approaches.

Dr. Huisingh is active in many national and international organizations, including UNEP , UNIDO, WHO , Asian Development Bank, and the World Bank. He holds part-time faculty positions at the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (Lund University, Sweden), the University of Massachusetts (Lowell), and Monterrey Tec (Technological Institute of Monterrey, Mexico).
