Environment and Pharmaceuticals

Here you can find information about the environmental impact of pharmaceuticals. You can search for the product name, the substance name or an ATC Code. Unless otherwise stated, the environmental
impact means impact of pharmaceuticals when used.

Information about the classification

The first search view presents information about the classification of the environmental hazard and the environmental risk. The document text for each drug in the database may indicate if T refers to acute or chronic toxicity. The environmental hazard is classified from 0-9, where a high number indicates high properties for making an environmental impact. The classification of the risk is usually based on theoretical calculations of the risk. For more information see the menu to the right, Classification.

For some substances there is also a risk assessment made on the basis of concentrations measured in the environment in Sweden and efficacy studies with high quality. These assessments are presented in the documents for the substances and are made by independent ecotoxicological expertise. Continuous work is underway to provide more substance documents with this type of environmental information and also present comparisons of environmental risk between substances intended for the same indication. (The document text is reached by clicking on the blue-colored document.) Based on this type of risk assessment, a table of environmentally hazardous drugs has been developed within the framework of Stockholm County Council's environmental program 2017-2021.
