AkzoNobel produces ten SIN List substances, four of which are included on the REACH Candidate List and one of which is also found on the REACH Authorisation List. The company does not produce any persistent chemicals.
AkzoNobel has a method in place to screen and assess the sustainability of its products and includes intrinsic hazards of ingredients in the screening process. The company uses the GreenScreen assessment tool but does not follow the principles of green chemistry. The Dutch company excludes substances with toxic properties from new products and actively markets safer alternatives on its website.
AkzoNobel has a timed phase-out strategy for hazardous substances and shares chemical safety information on its website. The company is a member of Responsible Care and follows voluntary standards such as a Code of Conduct and a Supplier Code of Conduct.
