Excerpt from Safer Chemicals in the Supply Chain-Hewlett Packard: strong awareness

"The electronics company looks at regulatory and other drivers, such as green procurement and ecolabelling, for direction on safer chemicals. It then looks carefully at alternatives to substances of concern to ensure they really are better.

In assessing alternatives, the company has been using GreenScreen®, a methodology developed by NGO Clean Production Action for comparitive chemical hazard assesment since 2008.

Since then, it has assessed more than 160 substances, including all commercially-available non-halogentaed flame retardants and phlatate replacements."
