Innovation drives our sustainability work

Innovation is a major driver for the development of more sustainable products and processes. Perstorp is a part of various R&D collaborations with academia, SMEs, research institutes and other partners to develop more sustainable solutions. New products are developed in line with a safe and sustainable by design approach and are often based on renewable or recycled materials where we also strive to support circularity.
