What is the Chemical Footprint Project? How can I participate?
Companies need to know the chemicals in their products and supply chains, and be able to benchmark their performance. CFP offers a new and welcomed option for companies to make progress in these efforts.
The Chemical Footprint Project provides an independent, third party assessment tool that will help companies to think about how to fully integrate their policies into procedures and vice-versa.
CFP is a market differentiator and provides a competitive advantage for business leaders. This new tool will add a level of transparency and help companies mitigate reputational and regulatory risks and exploit opportunities afforded by moving to safer chemicals.
We see the Chemical Footprint Project enabling us to quickly recognize and reward suppliers for doing what matters most to us in health care, which is implementing systems to ensure their products and supply chains use safe and healthy chemical ingredients
Participating in the Chemical Footprint Project pilot led us to develop a formal chemical policy that will be included on our website. Our chemicals policy and its successful implementation is the very heart of our company philosophy.
