Wildflowers.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 and graduate from Sustainable Futures become eligible for an expedited EPA review of their pre-screened chemicals.
