The NPPR 2025 Safer Chemistry Challenge Program (SCCP) is designed to motivate, challenge, and reward facilities to reduce the use of chemicals, especially hazardous chemicals, through source reduction measures. These measures include the following approaches:
- Making changes in production processes and adopting new technologies
- Moving toward cleaner processes that avoid the use and generation of toxic chemicals
- Changing raw materials to include benign or low toxicity materials that degrade into innocuous substances in the environment
- Using tools and design options in support of green chemistry
- Selecting and using safe alternatives
As part of this program, companies are encouraged to partner with state and local technical assistance programs. Such programs can help identify ways to reduce waste and emissions and move toward safer substitute chemicals, which can result in reduced costs, improved productivity, and regulatory compliance.
Challenge Program Benefits
By making changes and participating in the Challenge Program, companies can:
- Improve employee health and safety
- Minimize risk and liability Institute supply chain initiatives
- Improve company image with the community
- Reward investments in the design of increasingly safer chemicals and products
- Reduce cost of compliance and employee protection
- Realize that alternatives may have improved performance
- Improve profitability
This is a list of state and federal chemicals of concern.

Welcome to NPPR!
The National Pollution Prevention Roundtable, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is the largest membership organization in the United States devoted solely to pollution prevention (P2). The mission of the Roundtable is to provide a national forum for promoting the development, implementation, and evaluation of efforts to avoid, eliminate, or reduce pollution at the source.
