REINACH, Switzerland — Specialty chemicals provider Archroma recently announced the release of its Sustainability Report for its fiscal year 2020. Prepared again in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, the report outlines the company's progress on its priority sustainability topics, such as human health and environmental safety, resource efficiency, sustainable sourcing and product stewardship, as well as diversity and inclusion, and talent management.
For the first time ever, Archroma conducted a survey with its stakeholders to confirm the relevance of the sustainability topics covered in the report. These include biodiversity, occupational and product safety, and fair labor practices, as well as topics such as compliance, economic performance, and culture. All activities described in the report support the three pillars of "The Archroma Way to a Sustainable World: Safe, efficient, enhanced. It's our nature." This approach is the company's guide in making its operations and its value chains sustainable.
"The pandemic has opened the eyes of people around the world who count on us to develop safe, high quality and durable products that help preserve our planet. In this context, we, as industry leaders, must continue to push our agenda to make our industry, and the industries we serve, safe and sustainable," said Heike van de Kerkhof, CEO of Archroma.
