Google is committed to moving to safer chemicals in its products and operations to support a safe and circular economy, from production through the end of life for recycling. For Google, this means using less hazardous chemicals. To achieve this, a widely accessible data platform on chemical hazard assessments is essential, so that suppliers can take action and begin using lower hazard chemicals in their materials. The ChemFORWARD SAFER platform enables this by providing data on low hazard chemicals.
Google recognises the importance of flame retardants to ensure the safety of electronics products and systems. Google has already moved away from halogenated flame retardants as a class because of regulatory, customer, and market requirements, as well as their lifecycle health concerns (e.g., persistence, bioaccumulation potential and toxicity).
