Our CSR and Sustainability Strategy
Across the United States, Covestro has created a new model of citizenship that recognizes the power of people and their purpose to drive the 17 United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. Our goal is to improve the places where we live and work — as well as society, at large.
By creating a culture that empowers our employees, we’ve created a new corporate social responsibility model that applies the UN SDGs to all of our social programs, philanthropy, community relations and employee engagement activities.
“At Covestro, we're passionate about sustainability. So much so we've placed it at the core of our Mission to make the world a brighter place. That means sustainability informs everything we do – from the Research our scientists do in the laboratory, to the daily operations of our physical facilities, to the social purpose work our employees are engaged in throughout the community.
In all of this work, we're guided by the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.”
Whether it’s reducing plastics in the oceans, enabling access to quality science, technology, engineering and math education, fostering diversity and inclusion, safeguarding the environment, bolstering the work of our nonprofit sector or ensuring the health and safety of our employees and neighbors, it is our people and their bold thinking devising novel solutions.
“The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.”
