Growing the Green Economy Report

This guide will help state governments promote green chemistry practices, create green economic opportunities, and move national policy forward.  For more than fifteen years, green chemistry (GC) and design for the environment (DfE) have successfully been used to benefit the environment and the economy.  The Green Chemistry and Commerce Council (GC3) and the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR) developed this guide to further entrench these approaches as the bedrock of industry practices and government policies regarding chemical and materials selection.  The guide outlines options for states to promote research, development, and use of GC and DfE to eliminate or reduce the use or generation of hazardous chemical in manufacturing, and promote the development of the green economy.To view the report: Growing the Green Economy Guide (PDF)
