Swiss specialty chemicals company Clariant is the only chemical industry partner present at the “Umwelt Arena” (Environment Arena) which opens in Spreitenbach, Switzerland. In a space of 250 sq.m. at the first Swiss competence center for environmental technology, Clariant shows how chemistry supports modern mankind by making their daily life more comfortable, safe, and environmentally compatible.

“Our engagement in the Umwelt Arena is a clear commitment to Switzerland as our corporate domicile and to a singular lighthouse project with international recognition. In the framework of this European pioneer activity, we want to demonstrate that sustainability is an integral part of our corporate policy. Only companies that manage their business sustainably and conduct themselves in a responsible manner can achieve operational success in the long term,” says Hariolf Kottmann, Chief Executive Officer.
 
Clariant has taken another big step forward in its sustainability drive and has, for the first time, published specific environmental targets to be achieved by 2020 in its 2011 sustainability report. Based on reference values for 2005, the following goals have been set: reduction in energy consumption by 30%, direct CO2 emissions by 45%, direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions by 35%, water consumption by 25%, waste-water production by 40% and waste production by 45%.
 
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), an internationally recognized organization for sustainability reporting standards, has examined the sustainability report carefully and awarded it the highest possible A+ rating. In addition, the Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS) has audited and confirmed the accuracy of the information published and the claims made.
