For Johnson Matthey, sustainability is about how we can best run our business in the long term, and our Sustainability 2017 Vision is helping us get there. As we enter 2017 we are developing the next phase of our sustainable business strategy. Look out for a final update on our progress against our ambitious Sustainability 2017 goals later in the year.

2017: What we're aiming for

We aim to more than double earnings per share while halving our carbon intensity, achieve zero waste, and halve the key resources we consume per unit of output.

This will create a business that will continue to grow and prosper in its third century.
