Chemicals that harm our environment and public health are present in many consumer goods, but we cannot begin to reduce these harmful chemicals without an accurate understanding of the scope of the problem. The Chemical Footprint Project is a comprehensive tool for measuring corporate progress towards using safer chemicals in all phases of manufacturing and retail.




The Chemical Footprint Project allows companies to benchmark their existing chemical footprint, track progress on chemical reduction, and compare themselves to other businesses in their sector.  These tools are available for manufacturers, retailers, investors and large institutions that purchase products such as hospitals and governments.

This valuable information allows businesses not only to respond to growing demand for safer chemicals in their products, but also limit their liability and reputational risks.  The Chemical Footprint Project greatly benefits public health, the environment and businesses alike.
