Key benefits

Rapidly assess environmental requirements and guide decisions early in design, when changes matter most and cost least.

Apply practical design tools that allow you to consider eco impact and regulatory compliance alongside cost, performance, and risk.

Assess and manage restricted substance and critical materials risk for materials, coatings, product designs, and production parts.

Improve response to regulations such as REACH, ErP, and WEEE.

Environmental and Regulatory Applications

Granta helps organizations to proactively manage their exposure to environmental, restricted substance, and similar risks from the early stages of the design process onwards.

Respond to restricted substance risk

REACH reportingMI:Restricted Substances Package—manage your company's material and substance data, enabling in-depth analysis of risk due to restricted substance regulations such as REACH. Apply unique reference data for a complete view of: materials, specifications, coatings, substances, and regulations. De-risk materials and processes, design for compliance, and analyze existing products.

Quickly assess product risk, resource efficiency, and eco impact

CAD-based reporting on eco and regulatory risksMI:Product Intelligence—enable eco design, assess product risk, maximize resource efficiency. From a Bill of Materials for a product or design, run reports using Granta's comprehensive materials reference data. Support design decisions with fast assessment of eco impact, restricted substance risk, supply chain risk, and product circularity. Use via an innovative web app or within your CAD system.

Product risk data and materials selection

Eco property dataProduct Risk Data—Find and apply reference data on the environmental properties of materials, on restricted substances, and on critical materials and conflict minerals. Fully integrated with Granta's rich library of engineering property data for metals, composites, plastics, and more.

CES Selector for Eco Design—a PC tool for materials experts, that integrates Granta's Eco Audit methodology with powerful materials selection and substitution capabilities to guide early-stage product design.

EMIT ConsortiumThe EMIT Consortium

A collaborative project building on Granta's eco software and data, with a goal of embedding eco design into routine engineering workflows. Now entering Phase II.
