Advancing REACH - REACH and sustainable chemistry


Sustainable chemistry contributes to positive, long-term sustainable development. Chemicals regulations such as REACH can support several aspects of sustainable chemistry. The report gives a systematic analysis on the relations between main elements of REACH (e.g. Registration or Information in the supply chain) and main elements of sustainable chemistry (e.g. substitution of hazardous substances or corporate social responsibility of companies).

From data on problematic properties of chemicals up to information for consumers on substances of very high concern (SVHC) in articles: REACH supports already today sustainable chemistry in many ways. The report describes 12 recommendations for a stronger support of sustainable chemistry by REACH: from a higher efficiency of REACH processes up to an increase in exchange and capacity building.
