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.
CFP provides the definitive tool for measuring overall corporate chemical management performance. We look forward to its widespread use in the furnishings sector where a credible, third party benchmarking of chemical performance is missing, yet needed.
