A workshop was held in Tokyo (11-12 October 2000) to develop background material for a guidance document that can assist OECD countries and others develop effective research and development programmes within the context of sustainable chemistry (e.g., an institution which is researching improvements to a specific industrial process). This guidance document is based on the discussions inTokyo, and additional input by OECD Member

On the basis of examples of existing product categories and criteria for selecting products within product categories, the workshop identified differences and
The focus of the Workshop was to show the various attempts to implement service-oriented strategies such as "Chemical Leasing" models in practice. Moreover the possible economic and environmental benefits as well as the possible obstacles and drawbacks should be elucidated. The conclusions were to give an assessment of the prospects of future development for such business models.
The aim of the OECD Risk Management Programme is to develop methodologies to support government and industry efforts to manage risks posed by chemicals, and, when appropriate, to harmonise risk management activities on particular chemicals.
