Progress poses risks. We manage them.

2007 saw the initiation of REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals), a European Community regulation designed to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances—also a top-priority goal in the RÜTGERS Group.

We are well aware of our responsibility and are committed to minimizing potential risks at every level of the production process. As an active member of the “REACH for Coal Chemicals” (R4CC) consortium, the European initiative for the sustainable safe use of coal-derived chemicals, we are instrumental in driving forward the registration of these substances.

Transparency creates trust

In order to carry through our commitment to sustainability, we have long maintained intensive dialog with the authorities, whose resolutions we support. And we expect no less of our customers. We guarantee the safety to human health and the environment of all our products for their specified, chiefly industrial uses. We expressly condemn non-approved processing for consumer products and employ all the means at our disposal to prevent such misuse.
