Arkema group’s commitment to the responsible stewardship of its products
The Arkema group ensures that its products do not harm the health or safety of people and the environment. It carefully manages each step of the product life cycle in compliance with its commitments to Corporate Social Responsibility and regulatory requirements.
The Arkema group has signed the Responsible Care® Global Charter of the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) and is also committed to the major international programs which promote consistent and clear information about chemical products.
Its product stewardship process involves all the players in chain from the raw materials supplier to the end customer.
Experts in chemical physics, toxicology and ecotoxicology are also closely involved in order to constantly improve the level of scientific knowledge about its products.
In addition to meeting its regulatory obligations, the Arkema group contributes to several international programs for the evaluation of chemical products:
- High Production Volume Chemicals (HPV) under the authority of the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) and with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)
- Global Product Strategy (GPS).
