Good for business, good for the planet

What we do matters and each sustainable step we take in a pro-environmental direction is good for business and the planet. When it comes to sustainability Perstorp has always gone beyond environmental regulations, but now it’s time to get tougher and even more ambitious.

Finite Material Neutral – our bold ambition

Raw materials should never be used at a higher rate than nature can replenish them, and especially raw materials that are neither renewable nor replaceable. Perstorp is moving towards being a company that ceases to consume finite materials that cannot be replenished. Our ambition is to become Finite Material Neutral. This ambition guides us in everything we do, in all the decisions we take. It’s about making the shift from fossil to renewable and recycled raw material and energy; it’s about reducing waste and our water footprint and moving away from using endangered metals in our catalysts.

Taking our corporate responsibilities seriously

We also take our role in society very seriously. We promote our values - respect for the environment, the rights of people, ethical behaviors and transparency – throughout our business, and everywhere in the world where we do business. Responsibility – do the right thing is one of Perstorp’s core values. We act in a responsible way when it comes to the environment and also to make sure we contribute to a better and more ethical society that prevents, for example, unacceptable working conditions and corruption.
