Submitted by Toxnot
Toxnot announces new support for sustainability consultants and product manufacturers to deliver chemical transparency initiatives. Sustainability consultants can now work seamlessly across client accounts to manage supply chain data in Toxnot.
The new feature benefits are detailed below:
Consultants can collect supply chain data and publish it with redactions, to honor suppliers’ NDAs and intellectual property;
Consultants may work with multiple clients on the Toxnot platform, securely accessing their clients’ data while keeping projects separate; and
Product manufacturers may better access work done by consultants on their privately administrated Toxnot accounts.
Additionally, Toxnot users now have access to integrated third-party verification services for increased authority behind their product transparency labels. WAP Sustainability Consulting is currently piloting the third-party verification functionality in Toxnot. As an approved third-party verifier (3PV) for product transparency labels, for Declare Labels, Health Product Declarations (HPDs) and LEED v4 Manufacturer Inventories, WAP Sustainability Consulting 3PV services adds an additional level of rigor to product transparency documents, desirable among investors and shareholders.
“Toxnot focuses on providing a platform for all parts of the product transparency ecosystem. Sustainability consultancies and third-party verifiers are critical to scaling up this effort,” said Pete Girard, co-Founder and CEO of Toxnot. “This also allows Toxnot users to utilize their consultant of choice, while providing extensive options for supply chain data collection and protection.”
WAP Sustainability Consulting Managing Director William Paddock added, “The flexibility of the Toxnot platform aligns really well with WAP’s service offerings and we are excited to make third-party verification both easier and faster for manufacturers with this new Toxnot feature." WAP Sustainability Consulting is the first consultant to offer third-party verification services on the Toxnot platform.
