Reducing chemicals

We are committed to reducing and replacing chemicals that can cause harm to people and the planet. We encourage an efficient and proactive chemical management that reduces our mutual environmental impact.

Working closely together with the production units, testing labs and our partner Intertek* enables better overall chemical selection and handling. In this way, we will be able to provide products with a continuously reduced chemical footprint.

The basis for our chemical management and prevention work is our Restricted Substances List (RSL) which lists our chemical require- ments. The RSL is based on the EU REACH** legislation and additional national requirements of the countries we sell to.

Our RSL is produced together with our partner Intertek who has the professional insight in chemical legislation. Together with Intertek we do annual updates on the list that we get all the suppliers to sign and implement for us. We also work closely with RISE*** that helps us with strategy and questions regarding product safety.

Code of Conduct

It is reviewed and signed by all partners and suppliers annually. We meet up with our suppliers regularly and we sit down together with them to discuss and explain our Code of Conduct, to ensure that we have consensus in all parts. We do this so that all parts can grow and be the best that they can be.
