The Pharos Project is managed by the Healthy Buildings Network, which was founded in 2000 “to reduce the use of hazardous chemicals in building products as a means of improving human health and the environment.”
Pharos maintains three databases:
Building product library — Combines manufacturer transparency and independent research to provide in-depth health and environmental information about a wide range of building products.

Chemical and material library — Identifies key health and environmental information using authoritative scientific data for specific human and environmental health hazards, restricted substance lists, and GreenScreen List Translator scores.
Certifications and standards library — Provides information on certifications and standards used to measure the environmental and health impacts of building materials, including VOC content and emissions, recycled and bio-based content, and more.
These resources give a design team the information needed to meet the highest criteria for occupant and environmental health.
