Together for a cleaner, healthier world

We’ve been using our deep understanding of metals chemistry to solve big complex problems for more than 200 years. Pioneering emissions control technology for cars in the 1970s, we’ve cleaned up many millions of tonnes of pollutants from entering the air that we breathe. Our pharmaceutical products have helped make drugs that fight illness like cancer, and we’ve used our know-how to ensure we can do more with fewer natural resources in all kinds of industries.

Today our values and sustainability goals have never been more relevant. We’re making a difference in a world needing to take urgent action to address climate change. We're enabling and accelerating the big transitions to de-carbonise transport, energy and chemicals production; from major investments to speed-up the shift to battery electric vehicles, to technology that will be central in creating new sources of clean energy like hydrogen.

Our sustainability goals

We are well positioned to help the world tread a more sustainable path. Right now, over 80% of our products contribute to four key UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In June 2021 we announced a new sustainability strategy that will see over 95% of our product sales, and 95% of our R&D spend, align with these four priority SDGs by 2030. And better yet, we will do this while also striving to become net zero in our own operations by 2040.


It is clear that new chemistry technology will be critical to meeting the world’s challenges in energy, transport and future manufacturing. And we need the world's brightest talent to help drive our inspiring use of science and investment in innovation so we are ready to tackle these challenges head on.
