GLRPPR Sector Resource: Design for the Environment (DfE) Formulator Initiative
Design for the Environment (DfE) Formulator Initiative
The DfE Formulator Initiative encourages and assists formulators in designing products with more positive environmental and health profiles than conventional products. DfE can provide formulators with information on chemical characteristics and toxicities of raw materials and additives. DfE partners enjoy agency recognition, including use of the DfE logo on products with improved formulations. The redesign of chemical products offers important opportunities to: remove polluting chemicals from formulations before they can enter the workplace and environment; multiply environmental and health benefits through the use of reformulated products at many businesses and homes; and advance energy and water efficiency, resource conservation, and innovative technologies. This web site includes information on the initiative, partnerships, and initiative publications.
