Share the Future

For centuries, carbon black has played a vital but often overlooked role in making our lives better, advancing agriculture, aiding safer travel and improving the performance of everyday products. We continue to be driven by our purpose, vision and strategy, leveraging the power of carbon black to create social value.

Our sustainability strategy: Share the Future

We approach everything we do with the future in mind: from employee training and product development to reducing emissions and scaling circularity.

Our new strategy builds on our previous SOE strategy, leading our focus on the future with bold commitments and initiatives for a more sustainable tomorrow – to bring you the products and services we’ve always delivered, with our impact in mind. Through innovation and collaboration, Share the Future is a roadmap to results, driving forward our actions to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. We seek to reduce our impact beyond direct operations by supporting, and collaborating with, customers and suppliers to achieve similar sustainable progress.
