We strive to preserve
resources as much as possible as we go about our daily work. And that starts
with supporting the legislation that will make businesses and homes everywhere
more energy efficient.
We're also championing programs that make what's inside those buildings more
energy efficient, as well as supporting the development of new energy
efficiency standards for the appliances and buildings of tomorrow.
Silicon Chemistry Carbon Balance
Of course, our silicone products by their very nature are making the world
more sustainable, too. Watch the Silicon Chemistry
Carbon Balance video to see how silicones, siloxanes and silanes make
countless products more durable and efficient – even when taking into account
the greenhouse gases used in their production.
(Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals)
In that vein, we're conscious of how our manufacturing and business
processes impact the world. That's one of the reasons we're ensuring compliance
with REACH (Registration, Evaluation and
Authorization of Chemicals) – new EU regulations designed to better protect
human health and the environment.
We also follow our own eco
innovation model to develop new solutions that conserve precious natural
resources – such as silicones that remove ink during paper recycling, without
the need for caustic chemicals. Some of our most innovative ideas start life in
the Business & Technology
Incubator (B&TI), which focuses on instigating sustainable new business
growth aligned with key global megatrends.
