The Negative List is the cornerstone of our efforts to reduce the use of harmful substances in our production and products. It is applicable worldwide and can only be replaced by stricter local legislation.
The Negative List is based on current legislation, but for selected substances, Danfoss has adopted restrictions that go beyond current legislation.
Suppliers, tenants, and contractors working on Danfoss’ premises must comply with the negative list.
All suppliers with regular deliveries to Danfoss, must subscribe to the list.
Our requirements to suppliers are described in the Danfoss Supplier Quality Manual.
