Eastman 2018 Sustainability Report: Changing the trajectory

Innovation is imperative for meeting the needs of our changing world. We know we must create far more value than the resources we use or the future is not sustainable. And as the purchasing power of the world grows, we can add tremendous value by enabling sustainable consumer choices. While this innovation imperative is critically important, innovation is hard. True innovation changes behaviors and occurs at the confluence of an unmet need, a creative mindset, and the right resources which together can solve the problem. We can’t simply innovate for the sake of innovation. We must innovate to impact the world. That is how we change the trajectory. And that is how we define sustainability at Eastman.
