    Back to fruitful arguing

    Black and white thinking and isolation instead of constructive exchange – we are in danger of losing the culture of dialogue. This can also have fatal consequences for the economy and prosperity. A plea for fair debate.

    Shaping the Future of the Plastics Industry Together

    We need a strong industry – and we need a strong Europe. The EU elections are a critical moment that sets the course for Europe's future and allows citizens to decide how the EU should face upcoming challenges. It is an opportunity to shape a sustainable, resilient, and competitive community that meets the demands of a rapidly changing world. In this spirit, Covestro's engagement in associations is not only a contribution to its own corporate development but also a crucial step towards a more resilient and competitive European economy.

    Europe and its USP

    The EU is largely a successful project, also in terms of the economy. But the community urgently needs to evolve: face the new realities from outside, increase its competitiveness and focus on its core competencies.

    It’s a #Plastic Life: How innovative solutions set up industries and homes more sustainably

    About 400 million tons of plastic are produced every year around the world for goods that are indispensable to daily life, healthcare, mobility, and technology. The downside: growing landfills and #microplastics polluting the oceans. As much as we need plastic products, we need to do better and foster the development and use of #sustainable plastics that support the vision of a #circular economy.

    Earth Day lesson: efficient use of plastics and more recycling

    Earth Day reminds us of what's going wrong with plastics: We urgently need an effective circular economy to get the global waste issue under control, with designing products for this end from the outset. What we don’t need is less plastic.

    How Designing for Circularity Can Help Eliminate Plastic Waste

    The topic of plastic is divisive. Some see plastic as one of the quintessential enablers of modern society and a key material that will help usher in a more sustainable future. Others see it as a relic of an era too focused on profit over planet. Regardless of where you stand, we can all agree on one thing – plastic waste has no place in the environment.

    Getting It Done Together – Steps on our path to climate neutrality

    Covestro announced reduction targets for Scope 3 emissions on February 29, 2024. These make up around 80 percent of Covestro’s total emissions. The involvement of global suppliers plays a key role in achieving this. This is because these upstream and downstream emissions in the value chain account for around 80 percent of Covestro's total greenhouse gas emissions. In turn, more than 75 percent of this comes from raw materials, logistics services and product packaging that Covestro purchases.

    #InspireInclusion IWD 2024

    Is the International Women’s Day (IWD) just another 24 hours of fame for a topic that is marginalized for the rest of the year? Reality is more complex – but the IWD is a great opportunity to ask ourselves if we persist on building a workplace that nurtures female talent, supports careers, and champions equality.

    Joining forces for the sustainable transformation

    Materials are an important factor when it comes to driving circularity as well as lowering the carbon footprint of products and entire sectors. Steel, glass and concrete are the usual suspects that quickly come to mind when thinking of emission-intensive materials.

    The underestimated twin

    When people think of climate protection, they mostly think of green energy. But energy must also be used much more effectively, particularly in buildings, say Covestro CEO Markus Steilemann and Christian Noll from the German Corporate Energy Efficiency Initiative.

    From the boss's chair to the auditorium

    For many, this is a professional dream: to sit in the executive chair of a large company. For Yolanda Raffay, this dream came true in 2019 when, as part of the "My Position is Top" campaign, she was given the opportunity to take over the management of the Covestro production sites in North Rhine-Westphalia for one day.

    The waste, the city and the summit

    The climate summit in Dubai is primarily about expanding green energy. However, in the fight against global warming, the world's cities should become centers of the circular economy by satisfying their hunger for resources by, among other things, turning their waste into raw materials.
