Product Stewardship, or managing a product ‘from the cradle to the grave,’ helps ensure that products on the market are safer to both people and the environment throughout their entire life cycle.
It is part of our commitment in going beyond legislative requirements and environmental expectations, practicing openness and transparency, while we champion debate, improve and innovate.
We will go beyond regulatory compliance by systematically reviewing the use of our raw materials. We will prioritize the reduction of VOCs. We will review the use of packaging, its effect on our customers' business and our environmental impact.
Product Stewardship helps our customers to meet HS&E needs and regulations within their own industries. With Product Stewardship it is possible to identify problems early and so avoid regulatory compliance issues.
