How Will Tikkurila Ensure That The Used Raw Materials Are Safe And Of High Quality?
Tikkurila strives to use raw materials in its products that are as harmless to health and the environment as possible. When we introduce new raw material, we employ extremely stringent criteria with regard to the quality, durability, functionality and safety of the material. Each raw material is tested and researched before it is taken into use in our production. The right choice of chemical is an efficient way of reducing harmful environmental effects. The risks caused by chemicals are managed with legislative and financial means as well as with voluntary methods for the operators. The applicable legislation is influenced by national objectives, EU legislation as well as several international agreements aimed at reducing chemical risks.
