Why do we use chemicals at all? Because they are extremely useful! To put this into perspective, the products of the chemical industry are present in about 95% of manufactured goods. And modern economies simply couldn’t function without them.
Sometimes there are concerns about the risks chemicals may pose to human health and the environment. Hence, safe production and use are a key priority for our industry. As you know, Europe has the most stringent chemicals regulation worldwide.
Our commitment is to go beyond regulation and to extend safety throughout the value chain. This includes the choice of raw materials, production and use and the disposal or recycling of chemical products.
Our booklet “Chemicals Safety in the Value Chain” shows concretely how the chemical industry ensures the safety of its products along their life cycle. We hope you find this booklet informative and would appreciate receiving your feedback.
