Responsible Products


Our mission: Driving sustainable styrenics

We design our products to make a valuable contribution for our customers and the society. We achieve this by taking a responsible approach to our product portfolio along the entire value chain – from procurement, development and production to transport and sales, and from integration into customer processes to intended use. We want to offer styrenic solutions that deliver a strong sustainability performance and render our customers’ businesses as well as end consumers’ choices more sustainable. Together with customers and the scientific community, we engage in collaborative innovation of cutting-edge sustainable products. By driving product stewardship and quality management, we ensure compliance with product regulations and deliver safe, best-quality and high-performance products to our customers.

Our sustainability targets

We now have defined global sustainability targets for product sustainability. We aim to bring our sustainability quota for regional development centers (RDCs) above 50% and keep the quota for global R&D above 90% by 2018. In addition, we are working on a circular economy proof of concept for polystyrene depolymerization including a respective business case by 2019.
