Safer Ingredients & Materials
The chemicals used in your products and packaging have a direct impact on the health of consumers, the environment and workers; yet, this impact is seldom mentioned in sustainability discussions. As we understand more about the connection between chemicals and health, companies face growing risks and opportunities.
Consumers, especially Millennial and Gen Z ones, are demanding safer chemicals in products. Regulatory bodies around the globe are trying to play catch-up and restrict or ban toxic chemicals from commerce. Retailers like Walmart, CVS, and Target are committing for safer products on their shelves and greater transparency about ingredients. Likewise, investors are pressing companies to report their chemical footprint as a demonstration of more responsible chemicals management.
It’s clear that companies can gain a competitive advantage by focusing on safer chemicals and products.
