RPN Webinar: Spotlight on EPA’s Design for the Environment (DfE) Program 
Thursday, Mar 14, 2013
10:00 AM-11:30 AM PDT (1:00 PM-2:30 PM EDT)
 
For over 15 years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Design for the Environment (DfE) Program has worked with a broad range of stakeholders, including NGOs, product manufacturers, and chemical manufacturers, to help manufacturers choose the safest possible ingredients and to help consumers find safer products. Products that meet DfE’s stringent Standard for Safer Products are allowed to carry the DfE logo.
 
In this webinar, DfE staff described its standard development process as well as its product review, recognition, and labeling procedures, specifically addressing:
  • DfE’s Standard for Safer Products 
  • DfE’s Criteria for Safer Ingredients
  • DfE’s Safer Chemical Ingredients List
  • Other DfE initiatives such as its Safer Detergent Stewardship Initiative (SDSI), Safer Disinfectants Pilot Project, and Alternatives Assessment Program
  • How the DfE label can be used by purchasing agents to specify and procure environmentally preferable products
Many of RPN’s members have posed questions to us about this program (e.g., how it compares to other similar program such as Green Seal and EcoLogo). This was an opportunity to hear first-hand from DfE staff about how their program works and ask them questions directly.

Presenters included:
  • Libby Sommer, Environmental Scientist, U.S. EPA’s Design for the Environment Program
  • Bridget Williams, Outreach Lead, U.S. EPA’s Design for the Environment Program
  • Alicia Culver, Executive Director, RPN (moderator)
