Scivera to Implement New GreenScreen Certified™ Product Assessments
Charlottesville, VA – Scivera, a leading provider of chemicals management solutions for the global consumer products industry, announced today new Product Assessment services to support global textile chemical manufacturers in reaching GreenScreen Certified™ and their efforts toward documenting product chemical safety achievements. The GreenScreen Certified™ program is a new initiative of Clean Production Action and will support the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Waste (ZDHC) consortium of global footwear and apparel brands and their efforts to improve supply chain performance.
By integrating key parts of the certification process with the SciveraLENS® online platform and new Rapid Screen™ app, Scivera provides an unrivaled system to demonstrate chemical product safety while protecting proprietary ingredient information. In addition to the GreenScreen Certified process efficiencies delivered by Rapid Screen, footwear and apparel brands and suppliers striving for achievement against the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL) can instantly and securely screen unlimited chemicals and formulations for a single annual fee from the cloud-based Rapid Screen app.
“Scivera strives to create the path to better products via preferred chemicals,” said Joseph Rinkevich, founder and president of Scivera. “Our team of board-certified toxicologists and researchers have for years processed GreenScreen® assessments of chemicals as a Licensed GreenScreen® Profiler in partnership with Clean Production Action. Working together, we can help leading global brands and their suppliers meet increasingly progressive goals for sustainable chemistry by empowering better decision-making throughout the supply chain.”
Released this March, SciveraLENS Rapid Screen delivers quick and efficient access to hundreds of thousands of human and environmental health characteristics for consumer product chemicals. Rapid Screen can be utilized across all consumer product sectors. For example, building and interior products companies looking to document product achievement against the U.S. Green Building Council LEED Standard can use SciveraLENS Rapid Screen to quickly find chemicals ready for certification, saving time and money. Similarly, electronics component suppliers working with leading consumer electronics brands can proactively use SciveraLENS to report sustainable chemistry achievement and support brands’ goals of selecting preferred chemicals in materials and processes.
“To meet the rising expectations of consumers and retailers worldwide, brands must embrace new methods to engage the supply chain and provide timely and cost-effective means of screening, risk assessment, and reporting,” continued Rinkevich. “This shift from a compliance mentality to forward-thinking, proactive leadership will be driven by technology-based solutions that are anchored in sound toxicological practice but made simple to use and universally deployable. SciveraLENS Rapid Screen backed by our team of board-certified toxicologists and technology experts accelerates this evolution.
Founded in 2008, Scivera provides cloud-based software tools and consulting services to major consumer product brands and their global suppliers to support chemical regulatory compliance, alternatives assessment product integrity goals, and corporate sustainability efforts.
