Last week was the annual BizNGO meeting of companies and non-governmental organizations working to find and use safer chemicals in products and processes. As always, this year’s gathering in Boston provided important and innovative perspective from experts in the field of chemicals management, sustainable chemistry, and alternatives assessment.
As part of the conference, BizNGO staff updated attendees on progress with the Chemical Footprint Project (CFP), a BizNGO program in its third year that helps companies organize and track achievement against chemicals management metrics using the Chemical Footprint Project Survey. A growing number of brands including Levi Strauss & Co., Wal-Mart, Beautycounter, and HP participate and report using the CFP Survey. Getting started on even the most basic chemicals management policy can be a challenge. BizNGO convenes an active community of practice around the CFP to share ideas and improve the process.
During the conference, Scivera circulated a helper guide on how SciveraLENS can support companies’ efficient and cost-effective tracking and reporting toward the Chemical Footprint Program Survey (download the guide here!).
The CFP Survey focuses on four main sections:
- Management strategy
- Chemical inventory
- Footprint management
- Public disclosure and verification
By pairing the use of SciveraLENS® software and related services, Scivera helps organization improve their Chemical Footprint across all four areas. Check out the guide to see how and let us know how you would like to start improving your Chemical Footprint score.
