In addition to our Quality and Company Policy, FUCHS LUBRIFICANTES, Unip. Lda., has the following guidelines for the protection of the environment and the work environment: 

 

 

 

 

  • Environmental protection and protection of employees from accidents and occupational diseases have a high degree of concern in our company. For the management of the company these measures have the same priority as the economic and social needs;
  • The conscientious dealing with the environment and the safety of our employees, neighbors and customers is not limited to complying with the norms and laws in force. Our aim is that in our actions we use the best available technical means and that the environmental implications are minimized. For this we aim for safe jobs, without risk of accidents and work diseases;
  • We choose our logistics products and services in such a way, that allows us without risks and reduced environmental impact, to provide the client with a safe application and convenient disposal;
  • Protection of the environment and the work environment give positive impulses to the longevity in the market of our products. A conscious precaution with the environment and security is the basis of a realistic dialogue and trusting cooperation with clients, public services and the general public. Our suppliers are linked to our environment and safety policy;
  • To achieve our goals, we train our employees to carry out their tasks conscientiously and responsibly. The consequences of current acts and ongoing measures are subject to constant monitoring, evaluation and continuous improvement.

Important information for our customers

No data - no market.

The most important objectives of REACH are the improved protection of human health and the environment from the risks associated with chemical substances. At the same time, the intention is to strengthen the competitiveness with the EU.

FUCHS fully supports these objectives and is actively engaged in implementing the regulations. In close cooperation with our suppliers, our experts ensured that all the substances contained in our products were pre-registered before the December 1, 2008 deadline.

The first milestone in the implementation of REACH was thus achieved: FUCHS products will still be available in the future and to the same quality. We will undertake all that is necessary to register our substances and raw materials. For this we will gather precise information concerning the use and application of our products from you, our customers and this registration-relevant information can then be used by us and our suppliers.

Ensuring the conformity of our products with all legislative demands involves considerable effort for our company and we are thus assuming our responsibility for human health, occupational safety and the environment. You will therefore continue to profit from our safe products in the future.
