The handling, transport, usage, recycling and disposal of products must meet our strictest safety requirements. Regular product controls are therefore part of everyday reality for Covestro. This also includes comprehensive evaluation of possible health and environmental risks, all the way from product research to disposal.
A number of the products made by us are subject to extensive information disclosure rules. Covestro also voluntarily provides additional information regarding safe interaction with our products and offers training sessions and courses. Our products are continuously evaluated according to international standards, taking into account new findings, their hazard potential and potential risks. These evaluations serve as a basis for appropriate risk management. We also prove that we take our responsibility towards our products seriously through our implementation of the global product strategy of the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA
). In this vein, we produce Product Safety Summaries according to the ICCA standards and make them publicly available.
Our specialists work closely with customers, traders and the public in all areas of our business to ensure our products are safely handled.
When developing our product portfolio, we pay particular attention to new materials and technologies by searching for innovations in cooperation with scientists, customers and suppliers, and we also provide information and advice on the use of new technologies. In this way, we are able to achieve environmentally-related improvements within existing processes.
