Addressing Four Key 可持续性 Endpoints

As part of a strategic review of our product portfolio, we identified the products that address four key sustainability drivers.

  • Products designed for use-phase efficiency, a concept defined by the 可持续性 Accounting Standards Board (SASB) as products that "through their use—can be shown to improve energy efficiency, eliminate or lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, reduce raw materials consumption, 提高产品寿命, 和/或减少水的消耗,“通过:
    • 改进的产品 – by increasing the efficiency of a product during its use phase
    • 改进的过程 – by increasing the efficiency of the manufacturing process used to make a product
  • Stricter Environmental Standards – products that directly enable customers to meet environmental regulatory/legal requirements applicable to their products or manufacturing processes.
  • 减少消费/可持续 – products that enable customers to reformulate their products to avoid or reduce to 微量允许 levels substances of concern to their customers.

在一起, the products in our portfolio that address these sustainability endpoints accounted for approximately $1.1 billion or 49 percent of total revenue in 2020.

产品开发

沙巴体育APP is investing heavily into products with at least one of these sustainability drivers. Over 300 employees conduct research at a dozen research and development centers globally. Roughly two-thirds of 沙巴体育APP research projects are focused on products that will deliver one of our sustainability drivers.  Over two-thirds of revenues expected from the commercialization of those projects have at least one of the above sustainability drivers, and many have strong sustainability value propositions.

With the oversight of the 沙巴体育APP Research Council, 并由我们的PrISM过程指导, we expect growth in many of these areas to outpace the growth in other product lines, 并优先考虑R&D相应资源. We are engaged in ongoing conversations with our customers to ensure we understand their sustainability needs and how they define value. The conversations occur at all levels of the business from front-line sales teams up through our business presidents and the 沙巴体育APP 领导团队.
