There’s growing concern that some chemicals in fast-moving consumer goods – personal care and food – may have short- or long-term negative environmental and health impacts. Companies and consumers are looking more closely at product labels and questioning the chemicals in the products.  

In response, companies are revisiting chemical policy strategies. They’re working with us on how to identify and reduce or eliminate potentially harmful substances in their products, supply chains, and operations.  As clients want to improve sustainability efforts companywide, they’re including initiatives related to chemicals of concern (CoCs).  

With our world-class laboratories and technical expertise, we help organizations

  • understand CoCs chemistry and sources,
  • build awareness of CoCs approaches used by competitors and retailers domestically and globally, 
  • identify sustainable alternatives to CoCs,  
  • uncover insights related to trends, competitors’ policies, and internal efforts to address CoCs
  • summarize the approaches that competitors and advocacy groups are pursuing related to ingredients and packaging. and
  • define chemical monitoring and policy strategies.  

We provide actionable findings that organizations use to draft chemical monitoring and policy strategies to address their CoCs. Our insights include existing and emerging CoCs that organizations need to know, trends and signals that indicate emerging CoCs, and recommendations on which CoCs to address and how.  

The CoC space is complicated. We can help you navigate the space and position you to introduce the changes consumers want.
