The intersection of sustainability and innovation will address the global trends in the textiles, says a recent report on sustainability. With a portfolio of specialty businesses, Eastman has been working efficiently with its customers to deliver innovative products and solutions while maintaining a commitment towards safety and sustainability.

Eastman focuses on creating consistent, superior value for all stakeholders, stated the 2018 sustainability report, Changing the trajectory. Building on the company’s progress, the report provides a review of Eastman’s sustainability strategy and goals as well as highlights from the past year.

"We know we must create far more value than the resources we use or the future is not sustainable, and as the purchasing power of the world continues to grow, we must innovate to deliver consumer choices that will sustain and protect our world," said David A. Golden, senior vice president, chief legal & sustainability officer, and corporate secretary. "In this report, we have outlined a sustainability strategy describing how we help change the trajectory and address some of the world’s complex challenges."

The highlights from the report include the company's focus on enhancing quality of life; continue focus on responsible management of natural resources; commitment to advancing ocean science; and strengthened collaborations to drive positive change through social innovation in the areas of education, environment, empowerment and economic development.

The market-driven approaches of Eastman take advantage of world-class technology platforms and leading positions in attractive end-markets such as transportation, building and construction, and consumables. Eastman focuses on creating consistent, superior value for all stakeholders.  (RR)
