Industry today faces an unprecedented regulatory and policy landscape, designed to support the transition towards a toxic-free, low-carbon and circular economy. While these ambitions bring many challenges, they also represent significant opportunities for the specialty chemicals industry. At Clariant we believe that chemicals have a purpose and can generate value for society, but only if they are safe in use and only if this positive impact stretches across the full product life cycle.
Clariant continuously drives its product portfolio towards increased sustainability, harnessing its innovation capabilities to develop sustainable alternatives for the market. We are passionate about minimizing the use of resources and hazardous chemicals and delivering solutions to help our customers create materials and products that are designed, produced and used in a way that does not harm people and the environment.
