As part of the product safety and product responsibility programs, Clariant is constantly looking for substitutes for and alternatives to hazardous substances. This not only includes participating in activities within the EU registration program REACH, but also in Clariant internal initiatives such as EcoTain®, which aims to define product design while taking into consideration the entire product life cycle.

Clariant records hazards and potential opportunities with respect to environment, safety, and health on all company levels, in all relevant functions and in all business areas with the »ESH Risk Portfolio« (environment, safety, and health). This tool provides management with an overview of important ESH hazard potentials and risks. The risk assessment allows for the prioritizing of risk reduction. The overview of required and possible corrective actions is the foundation for an optimized allocation of ESH resources.
