There are many forces promoting the shift towards safer chemicals in the chemical market. Consumer awareness and education is increasing due to product certifications and labels, product declarations and Internet and point of sale consumer guides. Many major retailers are actively seeking to reduce the use of chemicals of concern in the products that they offer and large-scale institution and government procurement programs are screening out products with well recognized hazardous chemicals. Consumer and environmental advocacy campaigns are increasingly effective at pressing for the phase out of chemicals of high public concern.
