Sustainability - Mining

Read about our commitment to provide Sustainable Solutions in the Mining sector

We are committed to Sustainable Suppliers

As a leading supplier of chemicals in the mining industry, Quadra strives to align itself with sustainable chemical manufactures innovating environmentally friendly alternatives to commonly used products in the mining industry. The sustainability attributes of Quadra’s Green and Better Choice product line are rigorously validated through the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry.

The most common Green Chemistry attributes from our sustainable solutions portfolio are: 

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.

Quadra is proud to partner with industry leading sustainable companies to supply category specific products for use in the Mining industry. These companies share our engagement toward the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
