CPA - Chemical Footprint
Chemical Footprint Project - Chemicals of High Concern (CFP CoHC)
List of chemicals to be included in metrics for the Chemical Footprint Project (CFP), a project of Clean Production Action
The mission of the Chemical Footprint Project is to transform global chemical use by measuring and disclosing data on business progress to safer chemicals. It provides a tool for benchmarking companies as they select safer alternatives and reduce their use of chemicals of high concern.
The CFP defintion of Chemical of High Concern (CoHC) is a chemical that meets any of the following criteria:
• Carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic to reproduction (CMR);
• Persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic substance (PBT);
• any other chemical for which there is scientific evidence of probable serious effects to human health
or the environment that give rise to an equivalent level of concern (for example, an endocrine disruptor
or neurotoxicant); or
• a chemical whose breakdown products result in a CohC that meets any of the above criteria.
