We are aware of our responsability

We are aware of our responsibility to protect people and environment from hazard. Safety is our first priority. In all our actions we are following the guides of 'Responsible Care®', which is a voluntary initiative of the Chemical Industry. Although we are doing our very best to avert danger, we cannout exclude an incident. Please find here our recommendation

How to behave in case of an incident


Excellent performance and sustainability are compatible - Alberdingk Boley proves this day by day. Our water-based dispersions make green chemistry competitive - with a positive ecological balance, on schedule and on budget solutions and excellent performance parameters. 

Alberdingk Boley is aware of its responsibility to mankind and the environment: In 1995 we were one of the first German companies to undergo an 'environmental audit' under the provisions of EEC Regulation No. 1836/93 at our site in Kerpen, Germany. We follow the guidelines of "Responsible Care®", a voluntary initiative of the chemical industry, in all of our business activities. This commits us to strive for continuous improvement in the areas of environmental and health protection as well as plant, occupational and transportation safety. As an international company, we also support the Global Product Strategy (GPS) of the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) and accept comprehensive, cross-border product stewardship. 

For us, excellent quality is a matter of course. 

We are guided by internationally accepted standards in order to guarantee and be able to document the consistent superior standard of our products and processes. The management system for the business units polyurethane and polyacrylate dispersions and combinations thereof as well as for the business units linseed oil, castor oil and castor oil derivatives have all been certified to DIN EN ISO 9001 standards. Annual audits provide the framework for maintaining and improving the quality management system. 

Systematic Safety

This seal of approval confirms that we meet the requirements of the German Social Accident Insurance Institution for the Raw Materials and Chemical Industry regarding systematic and effective occupational safety and health.

This award has been given to only 200 companies in Germany yet, a quota of about 1%.

This seal  of approval also meets the international standards ILO-OSH 2001 and OHSAS 18001:2007 and we want to take this opportunity to also continuously develop in the field of occupational safety and health.
