Partner and Stakeholder Summits this November 12th and 13th. The summits will explore issues of interest to stakeholders and the program. Discussions will include informational and breakout sessions focused on developing solutions that can improve and advance the Safer Choice program, according EPA officials. Along with Safer Choice Partners, the EPA encourages purchasers, retailers, non-governmental organizations, trade associations, chemical manufacturers and interested stakeholders to attend.
The Safer Choice labeling program—previously called, “Design for the Environment,” or “DfE”—identifies products that are made with chemicals which the EPA has concluded are among the safest available for the particular function those chemicals can perform. More than 2000 products currently qualify for the Safer Choice label.
