Toward Zero Exposure’s Second Annual Report is now available!

Clean Electronics Production Network (CEPN)’s Second Annual Toward Zero Exposure report has been released! This report highlights each of our TZE program Signatories and their efforts to protect workers in 2023.

Building upon a growing momentum to improve worker chemical safety, the Toward Zero Exposure program and Signatory influence spans over 30 countries worldwide and has impacted thousands of workers.

Key 2023 program and Signatory milestones:

  • Over 700 facilities in the Signatories’ manufacturing supply chains are estimated to have already substituted the 1st Round of Priority Chemicals. Many thousands of employees work in production in those facilities.
  • Over 200 distinct supplier companies have been influenced to improve worker chemical safety by TZE Signatories.
  • Signatories included over 100,000 workers in employee engagement & participation initiatives such as Joint Chemical Safety Committees, surveys about working conditions, or grievance hotline awareness.
  • Over 1,000 facilities in the Signatories’ manufacturing supply chains have collected data on process chemical use with the Process Chemical Data Collection Tool (or equivalent)

The Second Annual TZE Report also features details on how we've streamlined and updated the program with the launch of TZE V2.0, information on CEPN’s 2nd Round of Priority Chemicals, and more.

We look forward to continuing to build on this momentum, support our Signatories in their journey and expand the TZE program. We welcome companies that share the values of our Founding Signatories to join us in the effort to protect workers from exposure to hazardous process chemicals in the electronics supply chain.
