Clariant has a strong heritage going back to the 1850s, but was formally established in 1995 by a demerger from Sandoz Chemicals Division.

Today, it is a focused specialty chemical company led by the overarching purpose of ‘Greater chemistry – between people and planet’. By connecting customer focus, innovation, and people the company creates solutions to foster sustainability in different industries. On 31 December 2022, Clariant totaled a staff number of 11 148 and recorded sales of CHF 5.198 billion in the fiscal year for its continuing businesses.

As of January 2023, the Group conducts its business through the three newly formed Business Units: Care Chemicals, Catalysts, and Adsorbents & Additives. Clariant is based in Switzerland.

Clariant aims to move toward top-quartile results in specialty chemicals in terms of growth, profitability, sustainability, and people. Clariant's purpose-led strategy has four dimensions and reflects the ambition to create value with innovative chemistry and a sustainability focus, putting customers, employees, and the planet at the center of all activities.

Together with this strategy, Clariant announced new financial and non-financial targets. Clariant expects to grow sales by 4-6 % annually, reach an EBITDA margin range of 19-21 % and generate a free cash flow conversion rate of around 40 % by 2025. Furthermore, to maintain leadership in sustainability, Clariant has non-financial targets for 2030 which are a 40 % reduction in Scope 1 & 2 emissions and a 14 % reduction in Scope 3 emissions by 2030. The company also targets to be in the top quartile of the specialty chemicals industry on Employee Net Promoter Score (ENPS).

At Clariant, R&D is a key driver to generate profitable growth. In 2022, the Group spent CHF 160 million on R&D, or about 3.1 % of sales. The Clariant Innovation Center located in Frankfurt, Germany, the One Clariant Campus in Shanghai, China and the Innovation Center in Airoli, India are supported by a further 10 R&D Centers and dedicated Technology Centers. Together, these facilities are home to over 785 people working in R&D and about 4,300 patents safeguard our knowledge about products and methods. 

Clariant is committed to generating sustainable added value. This is only possible if ecological, social as well as economic objectives are met. Our highest priorities are personal safety and environmentally sound processes and products. Furthermore, Clariant has implemented modern corporate governance structures to ensure accountability, responsibility and transparency throughout the Group and for its shareholders. Corporate governance reporting is in compliance with the guidelines of SIX Swiss Exchange and the Swiss Code of Best Practices in Corporate Governance. These efforts are recognized as several leading ESG rating agencies consider Clariant best in class within the chemical industry. More information is available here.
