Chemours Publishes 2023 Sustainability Report
The Chemours Company (“Chemours”), a global chemistry company, today announced the seventh edition of its annual Sustainability Report, outlining the Company’s progress toward meeting its 2030 Corporate Responsibility Commitment (CRC) goals. The report titled “Partnering for Progress,” showcases how Chemours embraces partnerships to deliver innovative products responsibly and more sustainably, share its success with others, and drive business value.

“Chemours’ commitment to sustainability and our values is unwavering. We’ve made significant progress against our Corporate Responsibility Commitment goals, prioritizing actions that improve how people live, power modern progress, and protect our planet for future generations,” said Denise Dignam, President and CEO of Chemours. “We are focused on priorities that matter to our company, customers, and stakeholders, and we fully integrate sustainability into our business decisions and actions across our organization.”

Chemours organizes its sustainability strategy and CRC goals around four pillars: Environmental Leadership, Innovation & Sustainable Solutions, Community Impact, and Greatest Place to Work for All. Inspired by the Company’s vision, these pillars guide the daily actions and decisions of its employees, from operations and product innovation to stakeholder and community engagement.

“The modern world continues to progress faster each year, and that brings both societal challenges and opportunities for creating a more sustainable world,” said Dr. Amber Wellman, Chief Sustainability Officer of Chemours. “Climate change, nature loss, social inequality, and public health are some of the most pressing issues of our time, and they require bold, collaborative action across society. At Chemours, we believe in the power of partnerships to find the best solutions to the biggest challenges and the opportunities they offer to accelerate progress. By working together, and through the unique capabilities of our chemistry, we help enable important applications that deliver on societal goals, such as transitioning to clean energy, driving innovation in low global warming potential thermal management solutions, advancing electronics and electrifying transportation, progressing a greener and more inclusive future, and helping improve lives everywhere.”
