Substances & materials

Ensuring end-to-end traceability and availability of materials

Growing environmental concerns are translating into more stringent, constantly evolving standards and regulations on substances and materials. This is making sustainability compliance increasingly complex – particularly for global businesses.

From reputational damage to unforeseen costs, the new risks and threats associated with driving sustainability can have dramatic consequences.

Leading the way

Our risk assessment framework is designed to identify potential risk exposures throughout end-to-end business processes – including design, production, operations, maintenance, and recycling.

Our team of consultants develop sustainable risk mitigation plans in line with ISO 26000. This ensures that organisations and their supply chains maintain business practices that help sustain the balance of people, planet, and profit.

We monitor various environmental regulations at the substance level, such as the EU REACH, RoHS Directive, the EU Battery Regulation, and the EU Critical Raw Materials Act among others, and we provide a concise strategy to comply with them. We are a trusted partner for any industrial player looking to boost its business resilience while enhancing sustainability compliance.

Industrial risk: Why we’re investing in enhanced 3D modelling capabilities for hazardous phenomena

Why do accurate 3D simulations depend on computing power? Airbus Protect’s Sustainability Business Unit studies various industrial risk scenarios, including toxic dispersion, fire and explosion. To do this, we use accurate 3D simulations. Creating these efficiently (with acceptable restitution time) relies on computing power.  Computing power is particularly important when computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is […]
