Lotte Chemical does not produce any SIN List substances, nor does the company produce any chemicals present on the REACH Candidate List or the REACH Authorisation List. It does not produce any persistent chemicals either. However, no data is available for the 94% of the company’s production that takes place outside the EU and US.
Lotte Chemical does not have a method in place to screen and assess the sustainability of its products and, therefore, does not investigate the intrinsic hazards of ingredients. The company does not make use of the GreenScreen assessment tool nor does it exclude substances with toxic properties from new products. The company does not follow the principles of green chemistry, but does actively market safer alternatives on its website.
The Seoul-based company shares chemical safety information on its website but does not have a phase-out strategy for hazardous substances. Lotte Chemical is a member of Responsible Care and follows a Code of Conduct.
