Sustainable chemistry: Key drivers in different industries
What does the search for safer, more sustainable chemicals look like for your business?
The trend is tighter chemicals regulations – no matter what industry you work in.
Chemicals are found in every industry, from toys to electronics, cosmetics, clothes and pharmaceuticals—and obviously within the chemicals industry itself. As governments (rightly) tighten regulations on the use of chemicals in manufacturing, how much do you know about the chemicals in your supply chain and products?
Apparel & footwear
Companies manufacturing and selling apparel and footwear are coming under increasing pressure from customers to ensure that their business is sustainable. Consumers want to know that what they’re wearing isn’t damaging the environment and doesn’t contain harmful chemicals.
Companies, therefore need to know what’s entering their supply chains, and how chemicals are being used across the product lifecycle.Learn how Under Armour keeps an eye on its supply chain
