Our raw materials Our raw materials

Our initial focus with our raw materials is to reduce our consumption by improving yields and processing efficiencies, and to focus our new product development activity on safer, alternative raw materials, including bio-based raw materials from renewable sources.

As well as ensuring full compliance with all product regulatory legislation wherever we operate, we want to progressively eliminate all raw materials with a known harmful effect on people or the environment, and therefore we continue to search actively for alternative safer raw material sources, working for universities, research institutes and other companies to do this.

Our long-term vision is for our raw materials to be largely or entirely sourced from recovered or recycled materials or by-products, which we can add value to, with the only fresh input streams coming from renewable, plant-based sources, ideally grown nearby our sites.
