Our innovation scouting team has a track record of finding high performing alternatives and implementing them. Our holistic approach helps clients to ensure that material and chemical alternatives do not have unintended consequences for circularity and end of life management. We support our clients to navigate the complex landscape of opportunities through a combination of deep chemistry expertise combined with industry and sector expertise.

Our chemical strategy will be one of the most comprehensive in the U.S. retail industry, including all Target-owned and national brand products and operations, not just formulated products.

Anthesis provides support to our clients across the full spectrum of regulatory and sustainability requirements. As a result of our extensive experience in EU REACH and our involvement in consortia and trade associations, and in our position as Only Representative, we provide clients with insight into the practical implementation of current and future regulatory requirements.

Our knowledge of chemical hazard assessment and connection with other teams in Anthesis allows us to help clients understand how regulatory and sustainability developments such as the Corporate Sustainability Directive (CSRD) and German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (GSCDDA or SCA) [DA1] can be managed effectively while maintaining business as usual.

Anthesis works with clients to evolve their approach to chemical management strategies by incorporating regulatory expertise and sustainable product development principles. We are able to provide specialist support in assessing the availability of alternative materials, avoiding regrettable substitution.
