Tintseta adopts 4sustainability® Chemical Management Protocol for ZDHC MRSL implementation.
The incentive of the market and our vision for sustainability have led us to seek solutions for a more sustainable production, also from a chemical point of view. The values in which we believe and our strong interest in environmental issues have led us to address the topic of the risk of toxic and harmful chemicals in a systemic way, integrating into our production cycles activities and controls aimed at gradually eliminate their presence, with the clear objective of protecting people and environment. With this goal in mind, we have built a structured path of adoption of the 4sustainability® Chemical Management Protocol, that truly implements the ZDHC MRSL and periodically measures the level of application in a transparent way.
This project, currently under way, includes:
- Appointment of an internal Chemical Manager with the system management team
- Mapping our supply chain with the identification of categories of chemical risk
- Implementation of ZDHC MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List) both internally and at external processes at high chemical risk
- Implementation of the Chemical Inventory and qualification of chemicals, according to ZDHC Conformance Guidance
- Definition of an internal procedure of Chemical Management, to ensure, among other things, compliant purchases in accordance with internal standards and controlled processes.
- Engagement of our suppliers on common objectives through training activities, remote self-assessment and on-site audits
- Training our internal staff
- Collection of data and information in our management system to ensure traceability
- Implementation of statistical sampling and control plan through testing, based on risk evaluation
- Use of data management Platform for the constant evaluation of the performance
- Constant reporting for the identification of the phase-out and improvement plan
The Group is committed in a transparency path, shared and tangible, for continuous improvement.
