Energy and Climate


Committed to Reducing Emissions Faster


Climate change is a critical issue for our planet and one of the most urgent challenges facing society today. The chemical sector, including Chemours, plays a central and complex role in the transition to a low-carbon economy due to the current and future demand for chemicals that enable low-carbon and energy-saving technologies. As the sector grows to meet this need, it must do so while reducing its own emissions.

Our 2023 Actions

  • Implemented a centralized data management system to further simplify and streamline our data management process for sites that comprise approximately 90% of our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
  • Realized a 3.9% energy efficiency improvement since 2022 through company-wide implementation of over 60 individual projects
  • Partnered on the Appalachian Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub (ARCH2)—one of the seven hydrogen hubs selected for funding by the U.S. Department of Energy

Continuing our Journey to Net Zero

We have established a decarbonization roadmap that incorporates planned energy efficiency improvement, renewable electricity, and process emissions reductions. This roadmap includes charter teams to identify new decarbonization levers, such as electrification and renewable thermal energy. Responsible manufacturing is at the heart of our approach in our own operations and in our work with our suppliers and customers. We are committed to reducing Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions, including air process emissions from fluorinated organic chemicals (FOCs), by improving our resource use, increasing energy efficiency, deploying lower-emission technologies at manufacturing sites, and increasing use of renewable electricity. In 2023, we made progress reducing GHG emissions largely due to targeted emissions- reduction initiatives completed in 2022 and improved operational efficiencies at several of our Thermal & Specialized Solutions and Advanced Performance Materials manufacturing sites.
