Making Our Operations Less Carbon Intensive


Products made by chemistry are vital to many low-carbon technologies, including the “built environment,” medicine and mobility. Yet the industrial processes to make these products are both energy and CO2-intensive.

As we hold ourselves accountable for contributing to a lower-carbon future, we continue to optimize our manufacturing operations, a journey we’ve been on for decades. In addition, we are looking to implement transitional technologies and innovate next-generation technologies for emissions-free manufacturing.
