The Business Case for Chemical Policy Reform
Companies with a vision for sustainable products, packaging and processes are seeking safer chemicals in their supply chains. Safer chemistry and supply chain management help companies meet regulatory and consumer demands for products without chemicals of concern. Chemical regulation both at the state and federal levels could provide critical information for downstream businesses and push the marketplace toward safer chemicals. The voices of businesses that can benefit from better chemical regulation are critically needed in chemical policy debates.
