Yara produces four SIN List substances, two of which are included on the REACH Candidate List but not on the REACH Authorisation List. The company does not produce any persistent chemicals.
Yara 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 Norwegian company shares chemical safety information on its website but does not have a phase-out strategy for hazardous substances. Yara is not a member of Responsible Care but follows voluntary standards such as a Code of Conduct and a Supplier Code of Conduct.
