Responsible Care

Since 2006, LANXESS has been committed to the ethics and vision provided in the Responsible Care® initiative, and is a signatory to the Charter of the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA).
Responsible Care® is the global initiative of the chemical industry to continuously improve its performance in environmental protection, health and safety. With its commitment to sustainable development as an ethical concern, this charter goes far beyond legal and similar requirements. Transparency and constant dialogue with the public are among the most important goals of the Responsible Care Global Charter.

Responsible Care® in practice

For LANXESS, applying the Responsible Care® Global Charter in practice means continuously improving our own processes and performance in terms of environmental protection, climate protection, health, safety and quality. With our guidelines for global quality, safety, climate protection and environmental management, we have integrated the principles of the Charter into our corporate policy. This is based on the conviction that only responsible action will secure the future of LANXESS.

Together
for
Sustainability

"100 percent, that's as good as it gets!" With these words, the auditor summarized the three-day review of the industry initiative "Together for Sustainability" (TfS) in the final discussion. In November, LANXESS was assessed for the first time on CSR* practices as a supplier at the entire Leverkusen site along an extensive agenda.

On behalf of all LANXESS companies located at the Leverkusen Chemical Park, a neutral certification company included the CAL plant and the HSEQ organization of the Advanced Industrial Intermediates business unit (BU AII) as well as the Group Functions Human Resources (GF HR), Global Procurement & Logistics (GF GPL), Legal & Compliance (GF LEX) and Production, Technology, Safety and Environment (GF PTSE) in the interviews.

The audit was prompted by a request from a customer who is also a member of the initiative. The TfS audit catalogue contains globally uniform assessment criteria relating to management and environmental aspects, health and safety at work, employee and human rights and responsible corporate management.
Sustainable procurement practice
The TfS initiative was launched in 2011 by six leading chemical companies, including LANXESS, and now has 19 major member companies. TfS has set global standards for assessing and auditing suppliers to promote sustainable procurement practices and to make suppliers' awareness and actions with regard to sustainability transparent and continuously improved.
