The Pharos Chemical & Material Library provides easy online access to chemical hazard information for over 20,000 Chemical Abstract Services number (CASRN) identified substances using the hazard lists identified by the GreenScreen List Translator. Users can look up chemicals by CAS number or name to determine health and ecotoxicity endpoints, hazard levels, and GreenScreen List Translator scores. The Chemical and Material Library was developed by the Healthy Building Network (HBN) as part of a suite of tools to evaluate the health and environmental impact of building materials. GreenScreen informs but is distinct from the Pharos scoring system for building products.
