How making more efficient use of resources and designing new products and services are at the heart of our Sustainability 2017 Vision
There are two key business drivers for sustainability:
- To be more efficient with the resources we use as a business
- To design new products and services which help our customers to be more sustainable and competitive.
By saving resources, from major spends such as energy, raw materials and water through to things we take for granted, such as stationery, we are making Johnson Matthey a more sustainable company, reducing our impact on the planet and saving money at the same time.
By developing improved, more efficient, more durable products for our customers and developing our existing products to make them more efficient in use, we will enhance our customers’ performance, reduce their sustainability footprint and at the same time improve our competitiveness.
Together these drivers support the development of products and services which have a beneficial impact on the planet, be it through human health, social or environmental improvements.
Our Journey to Sustainability
To implement our Sustainability 2017 Vision, we have developed a roadmap, from early beginnings to maturity. Sustainability initiatives are developed at local level, where the infectious enthusiasm of employees has exceeded all expectations. Communicating progress is an essential part of our approach and we also recognise achievement through our annual Sustainability Awards.
