Published 23rd April 2019

On the road to ZDHC Level 3 conformance across multiple production sites, leading speciality chemical company LANXESS is the first to enter into the Chem-MAP® Multi-site Award, through completion of the c-MAP programme.

After the successful completion of on-site c-MAP chemical management audits, at both their Leverkusen (Germany) and Changzhou (China) sites, coupled with a thorough MRSL testing programme, LANXESS have successfully achieved ‘Advanced Status’ in the Chem-MAP® Multi-site Award and ZDHC Level 3 conformance of the chemicals manufactured at these production sites.

With ongoing audits of additional manufacturing plants planned for 2019, LANXESS continues to demonstrate their commitment to responsible chemical management, ZDHC objectives the Chemical Gateway.

The Chem-MAP® team congratulate LANXESS on their ongoing success and look forward to continuing to support them on their chemical verification journey.


Chem-MAP® Multi-site Award

Chemical manufacturers with multiple sites who complete two or more c-MAP chemical management audits are entitled to receive the Chem-MAP® Multi-site Award, which is the second module within the c-MAP programme. Each production facility is awarded a grade using a credit based-system ranging from ‘Grade A’ to ‘Grade D’. Grades from the completion of chemical management audits at additional sites and credits from the remaining c-MAP programme modules influence the overall score; the Chem-MAP® Multi-site Award status. This ranges across four levels from ‘Engaged’ to ‘Leader’.
