Which of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals has Clariant selected, why those, and how does the company intend to achieve them?
Clariant is committed to advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations member states. Drafted in 2015, they offer a global framework for our most pressing societal and environmental needs, expressing them in a common language and clear set of actions for all stakeholders. Furthermore, they also present powerful avenues to unleash innovation and growth, as evidenced by The Business & Sustainable Development Commission‘s „Better Business, Better World“ report estimating that USD 12 trillion of additional market value could be generated by 2030 if the SDGs are achieved.
At Clariant, we are working towards this transformative agenda with our innovative and sustainable products and services, sound environmental management, and commitment to uphold human rights across our operations and supply chain.
