Safety and Environmental Assurance Centre (SEAC)
The role of the Safety and Environmental Assurance Centre (SEAC) is to assure the safety and environmental sustainability of Unilever products, and the processes used to manufacture them. SEAC has a diverse range of scientific expertise that is dedicated to providing risk assessments for the consumer, occupational and environmental safety, and assessments of environmental sustainability across the life cycle of products and processes. New informatics capabilities and computational & mathematical modelling techniques, used in combination with highly sensitive molecular biology and mechanistic chemistry approaches, are transforming the way in which we assess the safety of our chemicals and products. Our experts continue to develop capability through active collaboration with other leading edge scientists outside of the company.
This website represents the efforts Unilever and our scientific partners are taking to progress the science of toxicity pathways: to put in place the tools and novel thinking needed to implement TT21C/AOP- based risk assessments. In so doing, we aim to ultimately remove our dependence on apical endpoint toxicological studies and bring novel science to the decisions we make on the safe use of chemicals within consumer products.
