CFP news & BizNGO Annual Meeting
I wanted to share the latest updates from the Chemical Footprint Project, and to remind you about the BizNGO 2018 Annual Meeting. See below for details.
Chemical Footprint Project
2018 Annual Report
In case you missed it, the Chemical Footprint Project 2018 Annual Report was released in September. See how three years of CFP Survey data highlight the growing capacity of business leaders to develop and execute comprehensive chemicals policies, know the chemistry of their products, measure their chemical footprints, and be public about their journeys. Read the report here.
