Synopsis

Companies are facing accelerating pressures to adopt safer chemicals principles and practices and to cajole, encourage, or force their supply chains to join them. The demands stem both from governments and from leadership companies in the private sector. Corporate strategic planners had better pay attention, lest they get shut out of markets. The new regulatory and marketing environment for safer chemicals is an enormous driver of innovation. Winning companies will prosper by finding chemicals essential to life that don’t bear high energy costs, leave piles of waste in their wake, nor burden the health of current and future generations
