IRISS – The International SSbD Network

IRISS is the international ecosystem for accelerating the transition to Safe-and-Sustainable-by-Design materials, products and processes.

The IRISS project aims to connect, synergize and transform the Safe and Sustainable-by-Design (SSbD) community in Europe and globally towards a lifecycle approach.

The concept of Safe and Sustainable-by-Design is the core of the IRISS project, which includes focusing early in the supply chain on providing products that are part of circular models while avoiding properties that may be harmful to human health or the environment. It integrates circularity, climate neutrality, functionality and safety of materials, products and processes throughout their life cycle.

IRISS has created a SSbD Community, enabling participants to connect and discuss topics related to SSbD. Through this digital platform, members can join and engage in working groups focused on various value chains such as textiles, construction, automotives, electronics, energy, packaging, and fragrances. Additionally, participants can access information and guidelines about SSbD tailored to their industry.

SusChem and National Technology platforms (NTPs) support the IRISS project.
