Design for the
Environment -- "manufacturers started thinking in terms of
"design for" qualities or traits in their products and processes. At
the same time, views on risk management began shifting to approaches
that promote risk reduction through pollution prevention (also known
as source reduction). EPA recognized the need to develop a cleaner,
safer technologies program to work with industry to design products,
processes, and technologies that are competitive but environmentally
preferable. Several non-regulatory, voluntary initiatives on safer
chemical synthesis, comparative risk analysis, and alternative
technology development merged to create the United States EPA's
Design for the Environment (DfE) Program."
