CLIMATE CHANGE

Our Commitment to low Carbon Growth

The science is clear, global temperature rise is a reality. According to reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we have just a short amount of time before climate change becomes irreversible and will likely trigger feedback loops that will further increase the average temperature of our planet. At Clariant, we take our role in preventing such a scenario from becoming reality seriously. With the vision to become climate neutral by 2050, we have set ourselves ambitious science-based climate targets in line with the Science Based Targets initiative’s guidance framework. We are committed to acting upon the guidance provided by sound science to transform our business and allow for sustainable growth.

Sustainable growth means reducing emissions within our operations and across our value chain, and mitigating climate risk and seizing its opportunities, with high-performing innovative solutions for a low carbon economy for the benefit of all our stakeholders.

Commitments
Science-based climate targets
Our 2030 climate targets set out ambitious absolute emission reductions for our operations and supply chain activities. Together with our 2030 targets for sustainable operations, they are a clear reflection of our vision of sustainable climate neutrality by 2050 and set the pace of our climate strategy.
EMISSIONS REDUCTION
Continuous improvement across the value chain
Energy efficiency, energy transition and low carbon raw materials will be key for our climate reduction journey. As we work on achieving our targets, we will share our successes with you.
Tools
Our instruments for realizing reductions
We apply carbon pricing for evaluating capital expenditures and have made climate change mitigation a bonus relevant top priority, to steer and incentivize emissions reductions and carbon performance.
TRANSPARENT REPORTING
You only manage what you measure

  • The magic crystals that turn

    In fairy tales and movies, magic crystals have a long history of fulfilling important wishes at just the right moment – which is often the very last. Wouldn’t it be great if there were one for saving the climate? Well, there actually are crystals that, while not capable of completely saving it on their own, can do a lot to help the climate. Mehr

  • Beyond the Electric Car

    Say “sustainable car technology” and the conversation you’re having will likely leap to a Prius or Tesla and the magnificent miles they drive on relatively little or no gas. But there is a world of chemical advances out there that help make cars more sustainable, beyond engines that run on battery. Mehr

  • Green Power

    As the climate gives us increasing and alarming signals of change, individuals and industries are looking for ways to reduce their environmental footprint. But how do we balance our hunger for power with our fear for the future? With sustainability being a key element of the company’s strategy, Clariant actively supports an effective solution, the fuel cell: a device that creates electricity from fuel and oxygen, emitting only water and heat, thus making it a clean, green means of energy production.

SOME TERMINOLOGY
What emissions we are talking about
Scope 1 emissions refer to the direct greenhouse gas emissions produced during production (e.g. by burning fuels).
Scope 2 emissions are from indirect greenhouse gas emissions produced from the consumption of secondary energies, mainly electricity and steam.
Scope 3 emissions refer to other indirect greenhouse gas emissions that occur in Clariant’s value chain. For Clariant the most relevant emissions are from the production of raw materials purchased, transportation and distribution, fuel- and energy- related activities, and the end-of-life treatment of products sold.
Contributing to sustainable development
SDG 13 Climate Action is one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals closest to our hearts. Through our sustainable operations and innovative solutions - from hydrogenation catalysts to low-carbon Glucamides for personal care products - we are committed to delivering the innovation that empowers climate action.

How we are reducing emissions

  • 25 years of supporting change

    Like the cells in our body, chemical plants need energy and resources to make the countless useful products they provide – just in much larger amounts. Clariant has always worked to keep these amounts as low as possible, and is constantly finding new ways to downsize its environmental footprint. Mehr
