Upcoming Safer Chemistry Programs

NPPR’s Safer Chemistry Challenge Program would like to inform you of the many already planned webinars for the fall of 2013. The attached webinar flyer Fall 2013 SC Webinar series has these many webinars listed with registration information from the following organizations: Green Science Policy, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, and the Great Lakes Green Chemistry Network. Look out for the spring 2014 SCCP webinar series that will focus on various tools and case studies related to finding safer alternative chemicals.


Join the Safer Chemistry Challenge Program at no cost! The National Pollution Prevention Roundtable invites companies to join the 2025 Safer Chemistry Challenge Program (SCCP). The objective of this voluntary initiative is to motivate, challenge, and assist businesses in reducing their use of chemicals of concern to human health and the environment. The SCCP will also recognize and reward companies for finding safer alternatives to the hazardous chemicals they currently use.
