GreenScreen® in Practice

GreenScreen® for Safer Chemicals is used by a wide range of professionals including governmental bodies, non-profits, businesses, formulators, and product developers who are interested in assessing the inherent hazards of chemicals and their potential effect on human health and the environment. GreenScreen Assessment results can help inform chemical selection decisions at the product design stage, during replacement of hazardous chemicals in existing products, and in procurement. GreenScreen can also help support informed chemical substitutions in manufacturing supply chains, alternatives assessments and chemicals management legislation. Below we provide some examples of how GreenScreen is used by various stakeholders.
