As well as taking our place on a number of European and global compliance committees, we are also actively seeking replacements for less eco-friendly chemicals, staying one step ahead of legislation and making our materials safer for the environment. This constant search for safer alternatives involves close collaboration with our supplier partners, the second key pillar.
Since we use thousands of tons of raw materials every year, there’s an inevitable carbon impact from transport. But while this impact cannot be directly attributed to Datwyler, we are keen to reduce it by having raw material delivered in large volumes by dry-bulk tankers whenever practical and using local suppliers where possible to avoid transport by air or sea, or e.g. selection green labeled material grades.
