Devoting ourselves to understanding our partners' needs

We are working collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders, such as customers, partner companies, universities, and startups that help us become more sustainable, more innovative, and deliver more value to our customers.

We have formed partnerships with several startups and other companies to pursue innovative solutions, including Renewcell on sustainable textile recycling; Itaconix for bio-based polymers; Avantium for chemicals from wood; as well as co-hosting an event with Icos Capital Innovation Summit that brings startups, corporations, and industry experts in climate tech together.
