CIEL Report Claims Regulation Stimulates Chemical Innovation
Earlier this month, the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) released its report, Driving Innovation: How stronger laws help bring safer chemicals to market. In the report, CIEL offers research showing that stronger laws foster innovation by large and small companies alike. Among other things,CIEL cites the number of patents for alternative chemicals filed every time there’s new chemical regulation. CIEL is located in Washington, D.C. and Geneva, Switzerland.

Forbes magazine recently published an article on this same topic, citing the CIEL report among other sources. That article is available here.
