Finding the balance between industrial innovation,

 

sustainability, and economic viability

Our objective

While meeting global demand for technologies and chemicals, we seek to contribute to a more sustainable plating industry through our products and solutions.
Part of this is to continuously improve our environmental performance and resource efficiency. To understand and mitigate our impact, we apply systematic and preliminary risk assessments of all substances used for new development projects and products. This process is based on latest scientific knowledge in line with chemical industry standards. We use recognized and certified environmental management systems. We conduct audited environmental reporting and are committed to measuring our success against concrete targets.

Our achievements

53%

In 2020, 53% of our R&D projects were focused on improving environmental sustainability.

4.6%

From 2018 to 2019, we reduced total greenhouse gas emissions by 4.6%.

5%

From 2018 to 2019, we reduced total water withdrawal by 5%.

70%
