Our sustainability strategy


As a science and innovation company, we deliver sustainable solutions to solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Through unmatched expertise and ingenuity, our teams are working side-by-side with customers to design cutting-edge solutions across value chains, resulting in meaningful impact in the lives and businesses of people around the world.

Our sustainability strategy was developed with our purpose in mind, to empower the world with the essential innovations to thrive, and includes three pillars: Innovate for good, Protect people and the planet, and Empower people to thrive.

The pillars house nine goals designed to be challenging and provoke technical breakthroughs and new solutions for addressing our customers’ and society’s biggest challenges.

This year’s sustainability report is a collection of real-world impact that illustrates extraordinary outcomes that are possible when sustainability is embedded throughout innovation pipelines.
