Sustainable Supply Chain

Extending our responsibility commitment throughout our supply chain.

We are passionate about the new era of responsible chemistry, and we won’t stop at the borders of our own company to achieve it. We want to encourage responsible chemistry through our supply chain, and that is why we have launched our vision of what we call sustainable procurement.

Sustainable Procurement

Our ethos of responsible chemistry drives us to produce the essential products the world needs with the responsibility the world demands. In our procurement operations, this is underpinned by how we source material and service and by the partners we choose to supply these materials and services. We do this through the dedicated efforts of our people and in partnership with our suppliers and our communities. The sustainable procurement vision at Chemours is a commitment to sustainable practices, which thereby enables sustainable value for our stakeholders. By collaborating as a network with our partners to create our essential products and working with them to extend responsible chemistry into their businesses, we will have a positive impact on their employees, their communities, and our planet. We’re helping them along that journey through our Supplier Code of Conduct, which establishes the expectations we have for our suppliers and gives us a mechanism to evaluate them.

We have over 13,000 suppliers spread out over 130 countries. Encouraging them to adopt responsible chemistry too will have a large impact on the sustainability of our shared output.

Achieving our goal of improving the sustainability of our value chain requires changes from us as well, particularly in the way we work with vendors. We will shift to a total cost of ownership model. Key to this is recognizing that one of the costs from a supplier is their impact on the planet. By realizing that cost in our purchasing decisions, we can help make sure our sustainability commitments are reflected in our business decisions.

We are also looking to reflect our internal diversity commitment in our choice of vendors. Our supplier diversity program strives to promote innovation, provides multiple channels from which to procure goods and services, drives competition, satisfies customer requirements, and fosters commitment to the economic growth of all communities
