Global supply chains are increasingly complex, and it is particularly challenging to obtain consistent information on the safety of chemicals and materials in products. Manufacturers, retailers, and suppliers alike are looking for better ways to navigate this information and make decisions around materials, products and processes. A plethora of screening and decision tools have emerged in the last 15-20 years. This webinar provides an overview of the landscape of available tools, and two examples of how companies are using tools to screen alternatives and assess the life-cycle impact of products.
