Responsible for sustainability


As a fifth generation family-owned company we know the environmental impact of the chemical industry. To preserve our environment for the next generations, we implemented sustainability as an integral part in our business strategy. We actively examine our production processes and our complete supply chain on sustainability criteria. In this way we respond to the increasing awareness that sustainability becomes more and more significant for our customers and their respective markets.  

We are continously improving the environmental footprint of our product range. To assess our sustainability efficiency we are checking all relevant criteria:

  • Compliance to EU legislation (REACH), directives and restrictions
  • Usage of vegetable oil alternatives of European origin 
  • Evaluation of the sustainability of our production processes and our supply chain 
  • Research and development for environmental-friendly solutions 
  • Minimizing transport distances by using local raw materials whenever possible 

As part of our sustainability strategy Dr. Eberle Clever Chemistry GmbH implemented an Environmental Management System and was ISO 14001 certified in 2016.
