As a member of the Industrieverband Klebstoffe e.V. (Industry Association Adhesives eV.)  Jowat is working according to the following environmental guidelines:

Target

The European Adhesives Manufacturers organised in FEICA develop and sell products and systems which give a special benefit to the customer. This strategy includes a commitment to the constant improvement of safety and environmental aspects as well as the safety in the work place. The European Adhesives Manufacturers encourage their suppliers and customers to reach for the same goals.

Responsibility

The European Adhesives Industry declares its support for the Carter of Sustainable Development and the principles of the Responsible Care program as promoted by the Chemical Industry Federations.

Dialogue

The members of FEICA support and maintain an intensive internal and external communication process informing on issues relating to Environmental, Health and Safety protection. Information is made available in an open manner, ensuring that members are quickly and efficiently up to date with issues that affect them or their customers.

Product information

The European Adhesives Industry meets it’s obligation to inform customers and users about the properties of their products in order to prevent health risks and harm to the environment when a product is used to its purpose and handling instructions.

Work Safety and Environment

Legal directives and official regulations with respect to production, labelling and transportation of adhesives are regarded as a minimum standard.

Production and Products – Impact on Resources

Waste avoidance and waste material or energy recycling will have priority over landfilling or incineration. The objection of reducing total use of limited resources throughout the product life-cycle will be taken into account in the development of new products or production processes.
