In the first initiative of its kind to publicly benchmark corporate chemicals management and identify leading companies, the Chemical Footprint Project recently published its inaugural report. The results provide valuable insights into how firms manage chemicals in their products and supply chains, and how all companies might manage these issues in the future.
A select group of 24 leading-edge businesses both small (millions in annual revenue) and large (tens of billions in annual revenue) stepped forward to participate in the Chemical Footprint Project and to receive a score on their corporate chemicals management practices. Participants included: Levi Strauss & Co.; Seagate Technology, PLC; Johnson & Johnson; GOJO Industries; Becton, Dickinson and Company; Beautycounter; and California Baby, among others.
The report analyzes participants’ responses to a 20-question survey regarding chemicals management across four categories: Management Strategy, Chemical Inventory, Footprint Measurement, and Disclosure & Verification.
