Alternatives Assessment Software
We have issued a public version of our EcoValuate Alternatives Assessment Software©.
The software allows you to conduct an alternatives assessment and visually evaluate how alternative product development strategies perform in terms of hazards, economics, exposure potential, materials/life-cycle, performance, and other relevant factors.
The visual aspect of the software means that all members of your team—regardless of technical expertise, financial resources, and time—can work toward greener products without getting bogged down in lengthy reports. Nevertheless, our software accommodates access to reports, spreadsheets, and other data you find to be relevant and is designed to fit within your existing systems, regardless of your company size or capacity.
You will start with the software from the very onset to prioritize alternatives, identify evaluation criteria, evaluate alternatives, and compare scores. The process is iterative and should be done ideally using our EcoValuate Rapid Prototyping Method©. In the process, you will be checking in with your team about potential hazards, technical feasibility, economic feasibility and other factors. Your preferred alternative needs to successfully move from the R&D phase to the marketplace. We developed the EcoValuate Rapid Prototyping Method© to help you with this process.

The EcoValuate Alternatives Assessment Software© builds upon the alternatives analysis framework set forth in California’s Safer Consumer Product Regulations, the Interstate Chemicals Clearinghouse (IC2) Alternatives Assessment Guide, and other authoritative works. It is customizable and can also be used to conduct any other environmental, economic, and/or social impact assessment.
