To support the idea of sustainability within the value chain of the chemical industry and to fulfill its leading position in the supply chain also in the field of sustainability, Brenntag joined the “Together for Sustainability” initiative (TfS).
In October 2016, Brenntag successfully completed the "on-boarding process" and became full member of the initiative.
The initiative was set up in 2011 by BASF, Bayer, Evonik, Henkel, Lanxess and Solvay and today has 19 members (January 2017). So, TfS is on the way to become an industry standard. Its goal is to develop and establish a standardized global audit programme to control, disclose and support sustainability performance in the chemical industry’s supply chain. For this purpose, all TfS members will evaluate their suppliers with regard to sustainability. Resulting information will be shared between all TfS members (“One audit for all”) which is a very efficient solution for suppliers at the same time.
