Clariant joins the chemical industry initiative ‘Together for Sustainability’

14 May 2014

Clariant has joined the chemical industry initiative ‘Together for Sustainability’ (TfS), an organisation founded in 2011 aimed at jointly improving sustainability practices within the supply chains of the chemical industry.

Clariant becomes the eighth member in the initiative with AkzoNobel, BASF, Bayer, Evonik Industries, Henkel, Lanxess and Solvay – jointly operating global supplier assessments and audit programmes through independent experts. This avoids the need for each of the members to conduct their own programmes, by sharing scorecard ratings within the TfS member group on a web-based collaborative platform.

Assessing sustainability requirements through the programme, it aims at lowering risks in the procurement process but also reduces the burden for suppliers to participate in numerous different programmes.
