Associations and initiatives in which we participate

We further support and stimulate the protection of people and the environment with our participations in different trade associations.

We are for example a partner of the Responsible Care Initiative of the chemical industry.

Furthermore, we participate actively in the German sustainability project Chemie³ of the Verband der Chemischen Industrie e.V. (Chemical Industries Association-VCI), Industriegewerkschaft Bergbau, Chemie, Energie (Trade Union of the Mining, Chemical and Energy Industry-IG BCE) and the Bundesarbeitgeberverband Chemie (Federal Trade Union of the Chemical Industry-BAVC). 


BEZEMA AG is member of the Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers (ETAD) since 1999. 

ETAD was founded in 1974 to represent the interests of these industries on matters relating to health and the environment. It is an international organization and the member companies have operations around the world. ETAD coordinates the efforts of its members to minimize any possible adverse impact of organic colorants on health and the environment. Member companies are obliged to adhere to the ETAD Code of Ethics, which is based on the principles of responsible care. They must also comply with all national and international chemical regulations.

ETAD’s mission for a sustainable growth of the dye and pigment industry is to:

  • Provide a voluntary framework within which ETAD member companies and their value chain can cooperate for the benefit of health and the environment
  • Promote responsible care principles and product stewardship
  • Cooperate with authorities to harmonize health and environmental regulations.
