GreenScreen Hazard Assessments
For publicly assessable GreenScreens®, go to our Chemical Hazard Assessment Database.
Clean Production Action, a non-profit environmental organization, created the GreenScreen™ for Safer Chemicals (GS) to help users evaluate chemicals and their potential degradation products against a range of toxicity, environmental fate, and physical/chemical endpoints. Chemicals receive a combined “benchmark score” based upon the assessments of 19 hazard endpoints. The GS places each chemical along a continuum of concern and assigns them one of four possible benchmarks. The result of this process enables chemicals to be compared with potential alternatives using a consistent and common template.

Hazard Endpoints Table
Below is a table comparing the different hazard endpoints covered in GreenScreen™ assessments:
1Not needed if the assessment is done solely for inorganic compounds since all of them are assumed to be persistent. Clean Production Action created specialized rules for addressing inorganic compounds.
