Mitsui Chemicals 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 87% of the company’s production that takes place outside the EU and US.
Mitsui 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 does not follow the principles of green chemistry or use the GreenScreen assessment tool, nor does it exclude substances with toxic properties from new products. It does, however, actively market safer alternatives on its website.
The Japanese company shares chemical safety information on its website but does not have a phase-out strategy for hazardous substances. Mitsui Chemicals is a member of Responsible Care and follows voluntary standards such as a Code of Conduct and a Supplier Code of Conduct.
