THINC stands for transforming, harnessing, innovating, navigating and collaborating for a purpose-driven, sustainable future by 2030. Covestro created this annual event to introduce the 17 global U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals to the local Pittsburgh, PA community, where Covestro established its U.S. headquarters 60 years ago. By sharing the U.N. goals with local business, government, academic and nonprofit leaders, Covestro hopes to inspire action that will advance the region’s growth and prosperity in a sustainable way.
“Covestro is honored to receive this prestigious sustainability award. For us, bringing the global sustainability goals to Pittsburgh through THINC30 is critical to building a more robust, inclusive community for the 21st century and beyond,” said Rebecca Lucore, head of sustainability and corporate social responsibility at Covestro LLC.
“THINC30 has enabled us to share Covestro’s strategy for embedding the goals into our business strategy and demonstrate the impact this has had our triple bottom line – People, Planet and Prosperity. Our hope is that other local companies and organizations use our model to integrate the goals into their own operations to ultimately drive our region’s growth and sustainability.”
“We are proud to reward and recognize Covestro for their sustainability efforts,” added Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world.”
Covestro is hosting its second annual THINC30 summit in Pittsburgh on Oct. 17, 2018.
