Potential Risks for Kemira Oyj
These potential risks are based on the size, segment and geographies of the company.

Exposure to unknown chemical risk causing human toxicity
Contributor: Unsafe Workplace

Little is known about the long-term health or environmental consequences of exposure to the chemicals in the manufacturing process.

How it causes impact: Exposure to unknown chemical risk

Having unknown health risks poses threat to the company liability to legal risks/compensation claims in the future. Some scientists predict that the cancer rate in the silicon chip industry will rise significantly in the future because cancer can take as long as 20-25 years to manifest itself in populations of exposed workers.

Impact on planet or society: Human Toxicity

Potential Impact on Company:

Companies associated with this risk factor experience reputational damage which could lead to short and long term revenue decline and be liable to pay compensation claims.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Governance Factors
Good Health and WellbeingClean Water and SanitationResponsible Consumption and ProductionTransparency & DisclosureSupply Chain Management
Ammonia causing freshwater eutrophication
Contributor: Chemical Emissions

Ammonia is a multipurpose household cleaner that is found in many cleaning products that do everything from degreasing to sanitizing and removing allergens. The most common cleaning products that contain ammonia are floor cleaners and glass cleaners. When ammonia chemicals enter a freshwater environment as residues of household cleaning, their levels are not controlled.

How it causes impact: Ammonia

Ammonia in freshwater environments leads to eutrophication, which results in mass biodiversity reduction as water creates an anoxic environment where marine life cannot survive.

Impact on planet or society: Freshwater Eutrophication

Potential Impact on Company:

Companies are at risk of stricter regulations and so will pose a cost of finding a suitable alternative. They also may pose legal/financial costs if chemicals cause detrimental harm to the environment.
