Responsible Sourcing

OUR COMMITMENT
Sustainable supply chains

Our suppliers and supply chain relationships are a key part of our success. For Clariant, responsible sourcing means an untiring commitment to upholding high social, environmental and governance standards when making sourcing decisions. Through our membership in the Together for Sustainability initiative and our commitments, among others, to the Science Based Targets Initiative and Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, we strive to drive sustainability performance in our supply chains and to promote transparency and solidarity.
