EPA kan consumenten helpen huishoudproducten met veiligere chemicaliën te identificeren door sterker in te zetten op het “Design for the Environment” programma

29 september 2014

EPA found that the current Design for the Environment (DfE) logo does not adequately communicate to the consumer that the product is a safer product. They also found a risk that an EPA endorsement of DfE products may be implied by the current logo. The EPA also lacks sufficient controls over the use of its DfE logo by former program participants. There are weaknesses in both former and proposed performance measures used by the DfE program and the EPA cannot accurately determine the program’s impact on pollution prevention. Addressing the issues noted should further EPA goals, better promote safer products, and support DfE brand recognition among consumers (EPA rapport, 9 september 2014).
