Green Screen for Safe Chemicals

Hazard assessment and benchmark scoring system offers substitutions for hazardous chemicals


GreenScreen is an open source screening tool to promote the design, manufacture and use of safer chemicals in products based on authoritative scientific evidence.

GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals is a method for comparative chemical hazard assessment. It is used by a wide range of professionals, governmental bodies, non-profits, businesses, formulators, and product developers, and anybody interested in assessing the inherent hazards of chemicals and their potential effect on human health and the environment. It is used internationally by industry, government and NGOs to support product design and development, materials procurement, and as part of alternatives assessment to meet regulatory requirements. Assessments, based on 18 human health hazard endpoints, can be done in-house or with independent profilers. GreenScreen has four levels: BM-1,2,3 and 4. GreenScreen helps identify safer alternatives whenever possible.
