The SCCT is will address the broader impact of toxicological research to inform decisions that advance safer chemistry throughout the product lifecycle. Additionally, the SCCT will support scientific activities designed to promote the execution and application of toxicological research to reduce the likelihood of regrettable substitution throughout the supply chain through interdisciplinary partnerships.


To enhance understanding of the characteristics of a sustainable chemical.

To foster correct application and interpretation of state of the science alternative testing methods to assess human health hazards.

To advance the adoption of contemporary toxicology approaches for assessing data gaps for health and/or environmental toxicity and fate endpoints.

To encourage the balancing of lifecycle considerations against toxicological considerations when designing chemical formulations.

To promote best practices in performing toxicological-based research to support new product development and informed substitution.

To develop, propose, and conduct a variety of cutting-edge programs and educational activities that emphasize the latest developments and issues related to sustainable chemical design, alternatives assessment, and informed substitution.

To act as a resource to the Society in the area of sustainable chemical design, alternatives assessment and informed substitution.
