We are committed to Sustainable Suppliers
As a leading chemical supplier, Quadra strives to align itself with sustainable manufactures innovating environmentally friendly alternatives to commonly used products in the adhesives industry. The sustainability attributes of Quadra’s Green and Better Choice product line are rigorously validated through the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry.
Quadra is proud to partner with industry leading sustainable companies to supply category specific products for use in the adhesive industry. These companies share our engagement toward the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
GREEN CHEMISTRY PRINCIPLES:
IV. Designing Safer Chemicals – Chemical products should be designed to affect their desired function while minimizing their toxicity.
V. Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries – The use of auxiliary substances (e.g., solvents, separation agents, etc.) should be made unnecessary wherever possible and innocuous when used.
VII. Use of Renewable Feedstocks – A raw material or feedstock should be renewable rather than depleting whenever technically and economically practicable.
X. Design for Degradation – Chemical products should be designed so that at the end of their function they break down into innocuous degradation products and do not persist in the environment.
