2021/22 performance


R&D spend assigned to priority UN SDGs

We use our expertise in platinum group metal (PGM) chemistry, catalysis and process design to research, design and make products, services and solutions that support our vision for a cleaner, healthier world. From automotive catalysts that prevent harmful pollutants entering the atmosphere, to catalysts that help turn household waste into sustainable fuels, and from technologies that help make clean hydrogen to world-class recycling skills that help recover and reuse scarce precious metals. And we use our science and innovation skills to maintain a pipeline of new and improved products that will help the world accelerate towards net zero.

This year, we set important new 2030 targets to measure how much our products benefit society as they address global greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, and to advance the circular economy as we increase the amount of recycled PGMs in our technologies.
