GreenScreen® for Safer Chemicals was launched in 2007. It is a method of comparative Chemical Hazard Assessment (CHA) that can be used for identifying chemicals of high concern and safer alternatives. GreenScreen was developed by and is a project of Clean Production Action and has become a widely recognised tool for assessing chemical hazards, identifying chemicals of concern, and selecting safer chemicals.
GreenScreen is part of the green building movement with its incorporation into Living Product Challenge, LEED, Health Product Declaration, and Google Portico. GreenScreen is part of safer electronics where it is used by TCO Development, HP Inc., and now on the path to being part of EPEAT. GreenScreen helps define safer chemistry in the apparel sector with its integration into Levi Strauss & Co’s “Screened Chemistry,” H&M’s manufacturing Restricted Substances List (mRSL), and as part of the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals’ (ZDHC) Framework for the Prioritization of Hazardous Substances.
