Expanded goals advance organizational commitment to sustainability on a global scale
"This year, we are excited to use our sustainability report as an opportunity to not only reflect on our progress over the past year, but also revisit our broader sustainability agenda by establishing a set of goals that will challenge us to accomplish even more between now and 2025," explained Martin O'Neill, senior vice president, Safety, Health and Environment (SH&E) and Government Affairs. "As an industry leader, we understand our responsibility to continuously improve our sustainability performance. We are proud to expand our goals past a strictly environmental focus and include areas such as product development, suppliers' sustainability, diversity and inclusion, community involvement and more under the broader umbrella of sustainability."
Cabot's 2025 Sustainability Goals are focused in three key areas:
- Caring for our People and Communities – A set of goals to further our commitment to our people and the communities in which we operate through advancement in occupational health and safety, process safety, community engagement, and retention, development and diversity.
- Acting Responsibly for the Planet – A set of goals that builds upon our previously established goals for greenhouse gases, SO2 and NOX emissions, and energy. Newly established goals will address waste and spills, water use, and environmental compliance.
- Building a Better Future Together – A collection of goals that will help to ensure our focus on the future by generating economic value, connection between our product development and innovation and sustainability, and collaborating with suppliers.
"As a leading global player in the chemical industry, we understand that we have an obligation to lead by example in our industry," added
