Eastman: Innovating with purpose

At Eastman, we believe a truly sustainable company is one that creates significantly more value in the world than the resources it uses. ​And that’s how we define sustainability at Eastman — creating vastly more value than the resources we use — by steering a sustainable product portfolio, driving resource productivity to reduce our footprint and optimize our impact, and rendering focused good acts by employees and the company for the simple sake of doing good. Whether it’s through developing more efficient products and bringing innovative solutions to customers, collaborating with world-class scientific institutions to help solve significant global challenges, or working with community partners to have a positive impact, we are committed to enhancing the quality of life in a material way.
