In 1992, in anticipation of the emerging national and global trend toward product stewardship, pollution prevention, and green consumerism, a group of forward-thinking researchers at the University of Tennessee (UT) established the Center for Clean Products (CCP).

CCP is a multi-disciplinary research center dedicated to the development, evaluation, and adoption of clean products and materials. The Center is housed within UT's Institute for a Secure and Sustainable Environment.

CCP staff members bring a combined 40 years of experience to partnerships with industry and other stakeholders, working to improve the environmental performance of a wide range of consumer products and manufacturing systems. Through these partnerships, CCP has assisted industry leaders in adopting a life-cycle perspective, incorporating environmental concerns into the earliest phases of product design, and making clean production a cornerstone of their corporate culture.
