Driving change in a changing world

Our Sustainability Strategy

What sustainability means for us

Whether the world must become sustainable is a question we’ve long stopped asking ourselves. We are much too busy working on how this can be done. We have set out with passionate people, to create leading-edge operations and innovative solutions that mean progress for everyone today while sustaining the world for our children tomorrow.

As a major global specialty chemicals company, our solutions leave a positive handprint in many aspects of everyday life – enabling new technologies like using ingredients harvested from the roots of plants while protecting biodiversity, better living with sustainable materials like halogen-free flame retardants, and saving resources with powerful catalysts that reduce the carbon footprint. Yet we are also aware that this comes with considerable responsibility in terms of environmental impact, resource consumption and the lives we touch through our operations and supply chains.

We see the impact we have as an opportunity: To generate value for people with safe chemistry and the responsible use of resources; To enable a sustainable future in every way we can. And, above all, to add value with sustainable innovation.

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!

What we focus on to make progress

Sustainability is much too big a challenge to take on alone. We all must work together to make it real. That’s why we work hand in hand with companies along our value chain who like us are passionate about moving the world towards greater sustainability.

As a specialty company, there are five key areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact through our operations, products and solutions. They include fighting climate change, minimizing waste, eliminating pollution, creating safe and sustainable chemistry, and, fostering the development of our employees as well as the local communities in which we operate.

CLIMATE CHANGE
A low-carbon diet for the atmosphere
Climate change is the biggest challenge of our time. Clariant supports the transition to a climate-neutral economy by reducing our carbon footprint and helping others to do so with our innovative solutions. Continuous improvement, digitalization, renewable energy, low carbon and sustainable biobased materials are some of our key resources.
CIRCULAR ECONOMY
Going full circle to safeguard our future
It is no longer a secret that the straightest line to a sustainable future runs in a circle. We constantly strive to close this circle with innovative solutions for the reduction, reuse and recycling of plastics, smart use of waste, sustainable, biobased raw materials and by joining efforts with other changemakers.
SAFE & SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY
Always on the lookout for safe and sustainable solutions
Chemicals have a purpose and can generate value for society, but only if they are safe in use and the positive impact goes across the full life cycle. We are continuously driving our product portfolio in this direction.
VALUING PEOPLE
Our people are our success and society is the ultimate reference
Appreciating people is more than a responsibility we have towards our workforce, stakeholders and society as a whole – it's our recipe for success. This extends from the way we treat our employees to workplace safety and our clear commitment to human rights and good corporate citizenship. Whenever we touch on people’s life: we want to make a difference!
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Keeping our sites and slate clean
Zero is not a number that any company likes to see on their bottom line. But when it comes to pollution, we think it’s a result more than worth aiming for. We do so by thoroughly considering every aspect of our water use and emissions profile to keep our environmental footprint as small as possible.

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.
