Finding the balance between essential chemistry and the needs of our planet.
A growing global middle class spurs the demand for all the essential components of modern life many of us take for granted. We must meet the demands of these new consumers while respecting the finite limits of our planet.
As the global population grows, the increased need for essential goods such as refrigerated foods, durable paint, and connected mobile devices places greater demands on our planet’s resources. We are expected to deliver progress, innovation, and growth by supplying world-class solutions that solve problems without creating new ones. That’s a challenge we accept—relish, even—because reducing the intensity of our greenhouse gas emissions, nearly eliminating the release of air and water emissions of fluorinated organic chemicals, and reducing our landfill footprint is what our customers, investors, and society demand. We agree, which is why we’ve set aggressive targets for ourselves to reach by 2030 on our journey to becoming carbon positive by 2050.
