Chemical Footprint Project
The CFP 2017 Survey is now live!
Brands and manufacturers now have a common language for communicating to investors and customers their progress on their journey to safer chemicals.
The Chemical Footprint Project Survey was launched in 2015 and evaluates corporate chemicals management with 20 questions over four categories:
- Management Strategy
- Chemical Inventory
- Footprint Measurement
- Public Disclosure and Verification
Companies report that participating in the Survey brings unanticipated benefits to their organization through:
- productive conversations across their organizations,
- actionable metrics to inform goals and priorities,
- increased customer and supplier engagement, and
- new opportunities to lead and learn.
The CFP Survey supports brands and manufacturers in their efforts to reduce the regulatory, reputation, and redesign risks associated with hazardous chemicals and to communicate those efforts publicly.-
