This chapter illustrates one approach in the development of a green chemistry scoring tool developed in the chemicals industry. In a collaboration between Cytec Industries Inc. (Cytec or the Company) and the Beyond Benign organization, a green chemistry tool, called iSUSTAIN®, was developed. The tool provides a means to measure the relative sustainability of a product, based upon the Twelve Principles of Green Chemistry. Each of the Twelve Principles, which range from atom economy to reduced energy and process hazard safety, has been included in the tool. The tool provides a definitive measure of the sustainability of products and processes, enabling the development of an initial sustainability baseline and guidance for improvement, and acts as a learning tool for the technical community to gain an appreciation of the factors within their control that can affect the overall green chemistry aspects of their processes. This tool was developed to serve as a metric to assess the relative “greenness” of both new product ideas and existing commercial products. In addition, the tool was made available for public use. By making this tool available at no cost to academic and public users, it was intended to foster learning and change the mindset of scientists at universities so future generations of researchers will have these principles of sustainability well ingrained in their thinking.
