Enhancing the quality of life

ChemistryCan influence our future / ChemistryCan deliver

Chemistry will always be associated with the risk of handling hazardous substances. But we can minimise this risk through highly demanding operational management systems. The chemical industry aims to ensure that people and the environment are not exposed to chemicals at levels that have been shown to be harmful. We do so by complying with existing regulations, through our commitment to Responsible Care, and by supporting research to help us understand knowledge gaps.

In addition to striving after utmost safety, we also innovate towards enhancing comfort in our daily lives. Possibilities vary from breathable sports clothes, to charging your phone without a power plug.
