Driven by ambitious targets to protect our planet
Guided by ambitious targets, our environmental performance has improved significantly over the last 15 years. These continuous improvement efforts never stop. In 2020, we increased our ambitions further and committed to new 2030 sustainability and science-based climate targets with absolute greenhouse gas emission reductions. Because we want to lead change!
Contributing to the bigger picture
The UN Sustainable Development Goals
In September 2015, the member states of the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They serve as a blueprint for what the global community wants to achieve by the end of this decade to ensure a better future for all. Consisting of 17 goals and 169 specific social, environmental and economic targets, they set the agenda for a sustainable tomorrow.
Like sustainability itself, we see the SDGs not just as a framework to set the right ambitions, but as a chance to unleash innovation and growth. With our innovative products, sustainable operations and commitment to valuing people, we are dedicated to making contributions to the UN SDGs.
While we contribute to all SDGs in some way, there are six that are particularly relevant to our business and where we believe we can have the largest impact. Go to our SDG page to see how they link to our strategy and inspire us to contribute more.
Clariant has announced it is upgrading its ambitions for enabling a sustainable future. After establishing a dedicated transformational unit in 2020 to accelerate its sustainability transformation, the company now follows that up by committing to new 2030 targets to reduce CO2 emissions in line with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).more
