Our path to success

Each of our sustainability goals addresses an area of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Learn more about how we are aligning our vision with this international initiative.

We’re helping to make clean energy more widely available by developing products that contribute to e-mobility, improve performance and extend battery life. By creating better products, we contribute to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy.
We’re continuing to focus on the circularity of our products by establishing sustainable consumption and production patterns. We’re investing in recyclable and circular materials, and exploring opportunities to use chemical and mechanical recycling.
When it comes to climate change, time is of the essence. Our goal is to take immediate steps to combat climate change and its impacts by developing products that contribute to a circular economy and reduce GHG emissions through production and application improvements.
We aim to conserve and sustainably use ocean, sea, and marine resources. We’re introducing more 100% recyclable products to reduce the waste that enters our waterways, as well as investing in programs like Operation Clean Sweep(r) which helps limit pellet, flake, and powder loss in the environment.
By partnering with other organizations and participating in several industry initiatives, we’ve been able to see progress towards sustainable change.
