Welcome to the GreenScreen® for Safer Chemicals® Resources download page. Here you will find the most up-to-date version of the methodology for performing GreenScreen® assessments. You can choose to download the entire methodology as a single document, or to download one section or one Annex at a time.

Section I describes how to assess a single chemical using GreenScreen.  Section II describes how to assess a polymer using GreenScreen.  Section III provides guidance for assessing a product using GreenScreen and/or GreenScreen List Translator™. Section IV describes how to assess a chemical using GreenScreen List Translator. Section V contains all the Annexes referenced in prior sections. Section VI includes access to the GreenScreen Assessment Templates. 

In GreenScreen v1.4, the hazard criteria and Benchmark criteria are included in the Annexes of the guidance document rather than as stand-along documents as they were in v1.3.  In addition, there are separate Annexes for the GreenScreen Specified Lists™ and the GreenScreen List Translator™  Map.
