Clariant is fully committed to the principles of sustainable development in all aspects of production, transport, distribution and use of products and services during their life cycle. As a leader in the chemical industry, Clariant goes beyond legal requirements and participates in several programs including the Global Charter on Responsible Care®.
Independent Testing, Safety Standards and Eco-labels
Our products are tested by independent laboratories such as ISEGA to prove their ecological performance. Many of our products are also compliant with internationally recognized regulations and recommendations (for example, the US Environmental Protection Agency), and with the requirements of several eco-labels such as Blue Angel, Nordic Swan or EU Ecolabel (‘EU Flower’).
Products in line with Food Contact Regulations
Clariant has a range of products which are certified for use in food contact and hygiene applications under the various BfR and FDA regulations.
Due to our global legislative expertise we are able to provide our customers with a value-added service by ensuring full adherence to new European REACH legislation. Our Product Safety Department coordinates product safety activities within each division and across regions. It operates a central Product Safety laboratory and leads Clariant’s compliance management efforts with regards to European REACH legislation. more >
