Why do we exist? This is the central question that every organization and every individual must ask themselves in the face of today's global challenges. This is especially true for a company in the chemical industry. We bear a special responsibility, and we have to ask ourselves what contribution we can make. Why is it good that we exist? And we are convinced that specialty chemistry can be at the forefront of sustainable change. This is what our purpose "Greater chemistry - between people and planet." is all about.
