Why does ChemScore have a paywall?

ChemScore is created by the non-profit organisation ChemSec. For 15 years, ChemSec has provided publicly available tools for businesses and investors with the aim of supporting them in their strive for better chemicals management. ChemSec is funded by global charities and European governments and has been able to develop tools with scientific and expert input.

ChemScore’s goal is to publish a new ranking each year so that you are able to follow the chemical companies’ progress. However, it is costly to update and maintain something as comprehensive as this ranking. We are therefore charging a small fee to cover parts of the project.
