Award recognizes the company’s innovative sustainable offering methodology–EVOLVE 2030–for its contributions to product safety, innovation, and transparency
WILMINGTON, Del., June 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Chemours Company (NYSE: CC), a global chemistry company with leading market positions in Titanium Technologies, Thermal & Specialized Solutions, Advanced Performance Materials and Chemical Solutions, was honored today by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) with the 2021 Sustainability Leadership Award in the Product Safety, Innovation, and Transparency category.
Chemours received the award for its sustainable offering methodology, better known as EVOLVE 2030. EVOLVE 2030 is a Chemours-developed, 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.”
The EVOLVE 2030 initiative is a part of Chemours’ Corporate Responsibility Commitment (CRC) Goals, which were launched in 2018 and include 10 bold goals to achieve by 2030, each aligned with the UN SDGs. The company’s sustainable offerings goal is for 50% or more of Chemours revenue by 2030 to come from offerings that make a specific contribution to the UN SDGs.
This is Chemours’ second Sustainability Leadership Award in the program’s short history, previously being honored in 2019 for the development of Opteon™ low global warming potential refrigerants, part of an industry-leading family of more sustainable products the company offers. The ACC developed the Sustainability Leadership Awards in 2019 to recognize ACC member company achievements and contributions to sustainability in priority areas highlighted in the Council’s sustainability strategy.
