Sustainability is more than just a word for us. Our purpose: “To make the world a brighter place” is applied to all working processes, from the supply chain and purchasing to efficient use of resources, production and beyond.
We view each decision, each action and its consequences in a holistic way – taking into account both sustainability and safety. Covestro has taken on a pioneering role in this respect and established measures that make each step in our production process more sustainable and safer. However, we don’t just keep an eye on our manufacturing process: in order to ensure that the entire supply chain meets our environmental, ethical and social standards, we also ensure that our suppliers adhere to these principles.
Our principles comprise all areas, from employees and production to transport.
Covestro has a duty of care to minimize health, safety and environmental risks of each product over its entire lifespan.
We have established various measures and innovations that guarantee careful interaction with resources.
Many process and product innovations developed with and for our customers contribute to strengthening a circular economy with greater resource efficiency.
