Green Screen for Safer Chemicals

At the foundation of the Green Screen method are the principles of Green Chemistry and the work of the US environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Design for Environment (DfE) program. The Green Screen addresses many of the principles of green chemistry through its focus on hazard reduction. A basic premise behind green chemistry and the Green Screen is that chemical risk is most effectively managed by reducing hazard, rather than controlling exposure.
