Life Cycle Approach

PRODUCT DESIGN

We will engage our R&D resources to design more sustainable products, including the design of more sustainable formulations and binder systems.

END OF LIFE

We will create products that reduce the environmental impact of product disposal, especially the impact on water treatment systems.

RAW MATERIALS

We will examine the resources and methods used to produce our raw materials, and act to ensure we are continuously improving the sustainability performance of our raw materials.

USE

We will continue to design products with consumer use in mind, further improving the user experience by embedding sustainability as a key aspect of quality.

MANUFACTURING

We will continuously improve our manufacturing operation to use energy and water inputs efficiently. Opportunities to increase our use of renewable energy will be evaluated and implemented whenever possible.
We will work to minimize the generation of waste, improve the quality of downstream water and dispose of hazardous waste in the safest way available.

PACKAGING

We will work to reduce the size, weight and complexity of our packaging and improve the sustainability and recyclability of its components.

TRANSPORT

We will continue to develop strategies to reduce the distance our products have to travel and the emissions associated with their distribution.
