The Precautionary List includes substances commonly found in the built environment that have been classified by regulatory entities as being harmful to the health of humans and/or the environment. As such, this compilation is an ever-evolving and is updated as new data comes to light. This tool encourages users to employ the precautionary principle in the specification of building products.
Blue Icon - Asthmagens
This list identifies Asthmagens--substances that induce the chronic condition of asthma--commonly found in the built environment. This list is a compilation of substances that have identified human health impacts in the manufacturing, installation, and removal processes, as well as in the existing built environment. Compiled from third-party, government and academic sources, this list brings awareness on the causes of the disease and helps users make informed decisions on design and construction with respect to building products under the precautionary principle.
Purple Icon - Flame Retardents
This list catalogs flame retardants found in the built environment. A comprehensive list providing in-depth knowledge of flame retardants, this tool is primarily informational and educational, and helps users understand not only where flame retardants are found in the built environment, but also if identified toxicity levels have a potential impact on human health. The original research was done by the Green Science Policy Institute.
