The Swedish Center for Substitution has been involved in developing a tool for phasing out hormone-disrupting substances in the construction industry. The method can also be applied to other goods and products.
For construction products, there are several web-based services that help you choose health and environmental better alternatives. The building materials assessment, Sunda hus and BASTA are the most used. The web-based services can be used as a positive list to identify better alternatives and are an important contribution to achieving the national environmental quality goal: Non-toxic Environment.
The workflow is not limited to the construction industry, but is based on lists developed by, among others, ECHA and ChemSec. This means that even if the aim was to develop guidance for the construction industry, especially for BASTA, the same method can be applied in several industries.
