Ensuring responsible sourcing
Sustainable supply chains
Our suppliers and supply chain relationships are a key part of our success. For Clariant, responsible sourcing means an untiring commitment to upholding high social, environmental and governance standards when making sourcing decisions. Through our membership in the Together for Sustainability initiative and our commitments, among others, to the Science Based Targets Initiative and Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, we strive to drive sustainability performance in our supply chains and to promote transparency and solidarity.
We are a member of the Together for Sustainability initiative
We have a clear sustainability framework for our suppliers
A collaborative platform to assess performance
An integrated approach to on-site sustainability
Working hand in hand with suppliers to reduce emissions
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Clariant is working closely with its suppliers to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that stem from purchased goods and services.
«The supply chain, and you our suppliers, are an integral part of our overall sustainability strategy.»

Setting standards for sustainable supply chains
Our steering tools maintain high quality, ecological and social standards.
We expect our suppliers to commit to ethical and sustainable business practices, with consideration for human rights, child protection, labor standards and anti-corruption regulations. Our Supplier Code of Ethics outlines our strategy, scope and expectations.
Value Chain Collaboration
Promoting sustainable palm oil and traceability
An initiative of L’Oréal, Wilmar, Clariant and Global Amines is implementing specific action plans with regard to the sustainable sourcing of palm oil and palm-based derivatives in Malaysia, working on the transparency of supply chains and enabling independent smallholders to improve their quality of life.
Together we make a difference
Through our EcoTain® Partnerships program, we harness our sustainability and innovation know-how to take on known sustainability challenges that can better be solved by a team of partners than by one party alone.
Careful sourcing of raw materials
Our supply chains are global and complex. Working with experts, we take care to manage specific environmental and social issues connected with the sourcing of raw materials.
