Toray Industries produces three SIN List substances, two of which are officially recognised as chemicals of high concern by the EU. However, data is available for less than one fifth of the Tokyo-based company’s production, as the rest…
Toray Industries produces three SIN List substances, two of which are included on the REACH Candidate List but none on the REACH Authorisation List. The company does not produce any persistent chemicals.
Toray Industries 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. It does not follow the principles of green chemistry or market safer alternatives on its website either.
The Japanese company shares chemical safety information on its website but does not have a phase-out strategy for hazardous substances. Toray Industries is a member of Responsible Care and follows voluntary standards such as a Code of Conduct and a Supplier Code of Conduct.
