Sustainability Designators in Product Names
HELPING CUSTOMERS MAKE DECISIONS
Being aware of what we use and consume is no passing trend. Global challenges such as climate change are heightening the expectations of consumers, stakeholders and the general public when it comes to sustainable consumption and production.
Clariant is constantly developing its portfolio to add value. Our Portfolio Value Program (PVP) system was developed with its core elements – a criteria catalog and screening process – to bring forward verifiable sustainability benefits and drive ongoing portfolio improvement.
This system enables us to continuously identify and strengthen opportunities for value chain collaboration, engage in dialog with customers and stakeholders, and further add value with sustainability. It is the basis for substantiating specific benefits and for the identification of possible EcoTain® – sustainability excellence – products and solutions. It is also used to identify products that carry sustainability trade names or designators.
