ISSA has agreed to sponsor the CleanGredients™ database, a project initiated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Design for the Environment (DfE) with facilitation and management provided by GreenBlue.

CleanGredients™ is an online database of institutional and industrial (I&I) cleaning ingredients—a one-stop shop for green formulation. The database aligns broad environmental and human-health goals with the cleaning-product industry’s business objectives and will support formulators in developing and producing products with human- and environmental-health benefits, whether to meet corporate internal objectives, regulations, voluntary product recognition programs, or national and international eco-labels.

“Sponsoring CleanGredients™ is a great opportunity for ISSA and its membership and is consistent with the association’s overall objective of encouraging and otherwise assisting the development of cleaning-product formulations with a preferred environmental and safety and health profile,” according to Bill Balek, ISSA director of legislative affairs.
