Our Commitment to low Carbon Growth
The science is clear, global temperature rise is a reality. According to reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we have just a short amount of time before climate change becomes irreversible and will likely trigger feedback loops that will further increase the average temperature of our planet. At Clariant, we take our role in preventing such a scenario from becoming reality seriously. With the vision to become climate neutral by 2050, we have set ourselves ambitious science-based climate targets in line with the Science Based Targets initiative’s guidance framework. We are committed to acting upon the guidance provided by sound science to transform our business and allow for sustainable growth.
Sustainable growth means reducing emissions within our operations and across our value chain, and mitigating climate risk and seizing its opportunities, with high-performing innovative solutions for a low carbon economy for the benefit of all our stakeholders.

What emissions we are talking about
Scope 2 emissions are from indirect greenhouse gas emissions produced from the consumption of secondary energies, mainly electricity and steam. Scope 3 emissions refer to other indirect greenhouse gas emissions that occur in Clariant’s value chain. For Clariant the most relevant emissions are from the production of raw materials purchased, transportation and distribution, fuel- and energy- related activities, and the end-of-life treatment of products sold.
