Sustainable Futures Initiative

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description The goal of the Sustainable Futures Initiative (SF) is to make new chemicals safer, available faster, and at lower cost. It works by giving chemical developers the same risk-screening models that EPA uses to evaluate new chemicals before they enter the market. Using these computer-based models, companies can identify potentially risky chemicals early in the development process and reduce risk by finding safer substitutes and/or processes before submitting them to the EPA. Also, the companies that take training with and graduate from Sustainable Futures become eligible for an expedited EPA review of their pre-screened chemicals.
