Companies for Safer Chemicals Send Suggested Improvements to the Senate

The Companies for Safer Chemicals campaign led by ASBC submitted a letter to the Senate Environment and Public Works committee outlining the shortcomings with the recently introduced TSCA reform bill (S.697). The letter calls on the committee to make necessary improvements in order to drive innovation and investment in safer alternatives, and increase transparency in the supply chain.

“The Vitter-Udall bill as introduced falls short in delivering meaningful reform that benefits downstream businesses and innovative entrepreneurs. The Boxer-Markey bill goes much further. We look forward to working with the Senate to make improvements to the bills that encourage safer alternatives and promote transparency,” said David Levine, President and CEO of the American Sustainable Business Council.

Businesses are encouraged to join the Companies for Safer Chemicals campaign.
