"Essential. Responsible. Chemistry. 2022 Sustainability Report"

Chemours recently released its sixth annual Sustainability Report, outlining the company’s progress toward meeting its ESG targets. The report showcases the company’s global commitment and collective determination to responsible manufacturing of essential chemistries and significant—often industry-leading—progress toward its goals.

Titled “Essential. Responsible. Chemistry.,” the report illustrates how Chemours brings to life its commitment to making chemistry as responsible as it is essential through environmental leadership, sustainable innovation and community impact while striving to be the greatest place to work for all its employees.

“At Chemours, sustainability is central to everything we do,” said Mark Newman, President and CEO of Chemours. “That includes the products we make. While our chemistries are integral to everyday life and technologies enabling a new, green economy—from clean hydrogen and electric vehicles to advanced electronics and durable infrastructure, and so much more—they must also come with an unwavering commitment to responsible manufacturing. I’m incredibly proud of the collective effort of our teams, who have embraced Chemours’ vision to create a better world through the power of chemistry.”

“To us, making our chemistry as responsible as it is essential means setting ambitious goals to back our innovative chemistries with responsible manufacturing, strict emissions control, and a focus on improving end-of-life management,” said Dr. Amber Wellman, Chief Sustainability Officer at Chemours. “We’re proud of the incredible progress we’ve made toward our goals, reaffirming our ongoing support of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and continuing to challenge ourselves to achieve more, going beyond what’s required to do what’s right.”
