This commitment consists of understanding the impact of our products throughout their life cycles and providing straightforward communication about our products and their safe use. We work closely with industry trade associations to ensure that our products and their raw materials are appropriately classified for their hazards. Trinseo also supports ongoing toxicological testing to expand our understanding of chemical hazards.
To further enhance understanding of the impact of our products throughout their life cycles, Trinseo contributes to developing eco-profiles, also known as Life Cycle Analyses (LCAs). In order to determine the potential environmental impact associated with various plastics materials, it is important to collect and analyze data from multiple sources so that an accurate eco-profile of each material can be created.
The life cycle of the product includes all environmental, health, and safety (EH&S) issues faced from product development through eventual product disposal or recycle. The emphasis of the business is to minimize the potential adverse impact associated with EH&S critical issues. Trinseo encourages suppliers and customers to join our efforts to collaborate, innovate, and elevate industrial practices and expectations to ensure chemical products are managed safely throughout their life cycles.
In mid-2017, Trinseo was presented the Responsible Care® Merit Award at the Responsible Care® awards ceremony in Shanghai, fully affirming the efforts made by the production base, supply chain, sales, research and development as well as product safety teams in different parts of China, including Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Zhangjiagang, in actively enhancing the principles of Responsible Care®.
