More knowledge about nanomaterials

Our standards for product stewardship apply to nanomaterials in the same way as for other products in our portfolio. Because more knowledge means more safety, we have been engaged for a number of years in research on the safety of nanomaterials for a number of years. Advances in nanotechnology are accompanied by advances in toxicology, which will allow an even more comprehensive assessment of nanomaterials. Therefore we conduct toxicological experiments and participate in national and international research projects. The results are provided promptly to experts at symposia and from scientific journals, as well as to the wider public. For this purpose, we launched a website in 2008 where all the results of our safety research are published. In this way, we contribute to public and political dialogue as laid down in our code of conduct on nanotechnology. Relevant to the principles of the U.N. Global Compact
