It’s time to raise the bar again and use our unique position to inspire our people and partners to achieve more together and create brighter lives for all.
How do we continue to improve our standard of living without having a negative impact on the earth, and our future health?Until recently, the innovation culture in our industry was relentlessly improving product performance. And in this goal, it has been successful; our coatings, adhesives and materials are far superior compared to 50 years ago. Most of the industry is still competing hard to make better products.
HOWEVER, WE BELIEVE IN A DIFFERENT END GAME.
We innovate and produce high-performance products, but not at any cost. Why would we keep making paints with resins that release vapors damaging to health, when we have proven that there is a clean-air alternative? Why keep recommending solvent-based resins to make paints, adhesives and ink, when we have proven that there are cleaner and safer alternatives? At Covestro, we have a clear vision of the future of our resins industry, and a unique opportunity to be the catalyst to accelerate sustainable change.
