Committed to sustainability

We’re committed to making our products and operations more sustainable. As well as driving our own success, putting sustainability at the heart of everything we do means that our customers and employees – not to mention the planet – will also benefit. It’s all about creating more value with fewer resources and opening up infinite possibilities in a finite world.

Our sustainability approach

We have long been an industry leader in sustainability and our commitment to sustainability remains unchanged going forward. We take pride in improving our environmental impact and maximizing our positive societal impact. We work in alignment with the UN Paris Climate Agreement and we contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals through our operations, supply chain, products, and initiatives.

On a daily basis we strive to do more with less, reducing carbon emissions through a combination of improved energy efficiency, increased use of renewable energy, and higher use of bio-based raw materials in production. Downstream, we focus on expanding our portfolio of eco-premium products, which have a significant sustainability benefit over common alternatives.

We see sustainability not just as the right thing to do, but as a true business opportunity that delivers value to everyone involved.
