Environmental and humanitarian considerations
As a company using and producing chemicals, CWS has a clear environmental policy (see CWS Environmental Report) whereby we give maximum consideration, from production to the end-user, to the people who are in contact with our products.

We have raised the requirements for many of our chemical suppliers, just as we continually monitor, test and take initiatives to create better and more environmentally friendly products. For example, we removed chemical substances such as TGIC, chromate and lead from our production years ago.

We issue a new Environmental Report every four years.
