The Sustainability Leadership Award is given by the American Chemistry Council annually to recognize leaders in advancing safe, innovative, effective and economically viable solutions. Wilmington based Chemours was on this year’s list for their innovative sustainable offering methodology, EVOLVE 2030, which contributes to product safety, innovation, and transparency.
The Chemours Company is a global chemistry company with leading market positions in Titanium Technologies, Thermal & Specialized Solutions, Advanced Performance Materials and Chemical Solutions. They developed EVOLVE 2030 which is a third-party validated method designed to scientifically quantify the company’s contributions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
“Our EVOLVE 2030 methodology is a leading-edge, science-based, data-driven approach to measuring our contributions to the UN SDGs, making it groundbreaking not only for our industry, but for the world,” said Sheryl Telford Chemours Chief Sustainability Officer and Vice President of Environment, Health and Safety. “By seamlessly integrating key sustainability information into decision-making, we are able to drive more strategic portfolio management, meaningful improvements in product imprints, and ultimately drive value for our customers while minimizing the impact on our shared planet. We are proud to have released a public version of our methodology and shared our experience with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBSCD), ACC, The Conference Board (TCB), customers, agencies, and other interested stakeholders.”
A part of Chemours’ Corporate Responsibility Commitment (CRC) Goals, the EVOLVE 2030 initiative was launched in 2018 and included 10 goals to achieve by 2030. Because of this, Chemours was honored by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) with the 2021 Sustainability Leadership Aware in the Product Safety, Innovation, and Transparency category. This is Chemours’ second Sustainability Leadership Award, being honored in 2019 for the development of Opteon – low global warming potential refrigerants.
