We’re Committed to Becoming A Higher Value Chemistry Company

Our Chemours company vision focuses on our higher-volume, differentiated premium products that position us for growth across the world.

Chemours company vision and strategy.

We bring Higher Value Chemistry to our customers, investors, and society.

Our approach is to invest in the areas where we are the strongest by focusing on our differentiated portfolio of performance chemicals. These are the premium products our customers in developed and developing markets buy in high volume. Products such as titanium dioxide, fluoroproducts, cyanide, and more that are essential to making many goods that people use every day.

The Chemours Company vision to become a Higher Value Chemistry company is based on addressing four distinct global trends.

 

The people icon symbolizes growth of developing markets and the emerging middle class. The pipet icon symbolizes continuous demand for value added products in developed markets. The sprout icon symbolizes increased focus on responsible and sustainable products and processes. The icon of the pile of gold symbolizes expected increase in gold demand worldwide.

  • Our low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant, Opteon™, is already geared to meet the standards of the European marketplace to use HFO refrigerants by 2017, helping reduce CO2 emissions globally.

  • Our non-fluorinated fabric protector, Teflon EcoElite™—used in apparel and water-resistant coatings—is now made with 60% renewably sourced content.

  • Using Ti-Pure™ Select TS-6300 in place of a universal titanium dioxide can shrink the carbon footprint of paints used in buildings by 20% or more.

  • Safer management of cyanide, from production through disposal, supports producing more gold with less risk.

We’re leveraging advantages that are unique to our company.

  • Portfolio advantage

  • Product advantage

  • Operational advantage

 

A balanced portfolio.

We’re aggressively simplifying our portfolio of products and focusing on three key growth initiatives: titanium technologies, fluoroproducts, and cyanide—the offerings and performance chemicals that are the heart of Higher Value Chemistry. The aim is to keep our portfolio balanced and nimble enough to respond to the needs of developed and developing markets alike.

Our portfolio closely mirrors GDP, and is perfectly balanced for performance in developing and developed markets. This balance puts us in the right position to weather local economic weakness and financial cycles.

Leading brands built on constant innovation.

We never stop working to improve our products and services; this is a main reason why customers choose Chemours. We have transformative product innovations and new customer-led applications in our pipeline that are positioning our industry-leading brands for continued growth. But we don’t stop there—we’re always looking for ways to expand our horizons of innovation even further as we prepare for future market challenges and opportunities. For example, we’re continually upgrading our titanium dioxide products despite already being the largest manufacturer in the market.

Our leading brands such as Opteon™, Teflon™, and Ti-Pure™ represent a powerful platform for future growth in a wide range of end markets in more than 130 countries.

Higher Value Chemistry is about how we focus our energy on the areas where we can make the biggest impact with our leading products and technologies.

Global operations to scale.

Markets are more globally minded now than ever, and so are we. In evaluating this shift, we recognize our sizable advantage in providing economies of scale. Whether it’s fluoroproducts or our TiO2 business, we have facilities worldwide that tailor products so they meet the needs of emerging markets while keeping costs under control.

We have a new TiO2 facility coming online in Altamira, Mexico, that’s going to be the lowest cost provider of its kind in the world, allowing us to better serve our customers.

We are positioned for the future.

Becoming a Higher Value Chemistry company means that we are intent upon delivering higher value to our customers, our value-chain partners, our shareholders, and the world at large. We are focusing our energies on becoming the kind of company that both leads change and responds to the changing needs of the world.
