Our work in associations and initiatives
Through our membership of various industry associations, we want to contribute to improving the protection of people and the environment. For example, we are a member of the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI) and are committed to the chemical industry’s Responsible Care® Initiative as a partner. We have actively supported the sustainability initiative Chemie³ of the Chemical Industries Association (VCI), the Union for Mining, Chemical and Energy Industries (IG BCE) and the Federal Employers’ Association of Chemical Industry (BAVC) as well as the Chemistry4Climate (c4c) platform of the partners VCI and VDI (Association of German engineers) up to the time when this document was submitted to the German government on April 26, 2023.
Furthermore, in addition to our long-standing membership in TEGEWA and ETAD, we have also been active at a European level in both the CEFIC (European Chemical Industry Council) and Silicones Europe (Silicone Manufacturers Association) since 2022.
In December 2021, the CHT Group made a commitment to SBTi (Science Based Targets initiative) to comply with the targets of the Paris Climate Agreement.
The CHT Group is a member (status: Signatory Member) of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest and most important initiative for responsible corporate governance.. We commit ourselves to aligning our business activity and strategies with ten universally recognized principles in the areas of human rights, labor standards, environmental protection, and anti-corruption.
