Clariant Highlights Sustainability Journey at ACS


Clariant focuses on continuously steering its environmental performance towards increased sustainability.

Clariant sets a strong focus on continuously steering its environmental performance towards increased sustainability and setting new environmental benchmarks through leading operations and innovation. Its goal is to become climate neutral by 2050.

In 2020, Clariant defined new climate targets in line with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). These set out ambitious absolute reductions for scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions between 2019 to 2030.

The Science Based Targets initiative is a coalition established to develop the framework to help companies and industry develop concrete greenhouse gas emission targets. Clariant was among the first specialty chemicals companies to set greenhouse gas emission reduction targets that are in line with what the latest climate science says is necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change.

One important tool in achieving this is Clariant’s EcoTain® label. Products that offer outstanding sustainability advantages are excelled with the EcoTain® label. These products have undergone a systematic, in-depth screening process using 36 criteria in all three sustainability dimensions: social, environmental and economic. According to Clariant, EcoTain® products significantly exceed sustainability market standards, have best-in-class performance and contribute overall to sustainability efforts of the company and our customers.
